RAPID CITY— The City is seeking candidates to fill positions for the newly-created Parking Advisory Board, resulting from recent amendments to Rapid City Municipal Code Chapter 10.40. Applicants must be residents of Rapid City, or be the owner of property located in the downtown district. An owner of property shall mean the title holder, purchaser under a contract for deed, lessee, or an officer, agent, or employee of a legal entity that meets one of the three criteria.
Seven (7) members will be appointed to this advisory board, with a minimum of four (4) members being from the district. Appointments will be subject to City Council confirmation and will be recommended in two and three-year staggered terms.
Application deadline is Friday, May 24. Interested candidates should complete a Citizen Interest Application online or pick up an application in the Mayor’s Office. Questions can be directed to the Mayor’s Office at 605-394-4110.
The Parking Advisory Board will advise and make policy recommendations to City staff and City Council on all aspects of public parking within the City. The purpose of the board is to provide citizen and property owner input into the policy decisions for the City related to all aspects of public parking, including on-street parking, parking meters, parking garages, parking lots, and parking fees. The board is also responsible for hearing and deciding any administrative appeals from people assessed additional fees for parking in violation of the code. The board will meet as necessary to fulfill its obligations and perform the established duties.
The City has a variety of opportunities available for citizen involvement in local government through citizen volunteer boards and committees.
