Input Sought at Two Community Supper Events Next Week
RAPID CITY, SD--The public is invited to two presentations next week on the City's historic preservation efforts. The sessions, entitled 'Rapid City - Our History, Our Future: A Conversation About Historic Preservation' will be held Tuesday, April 9 at the General Beadle School's Large Commons and Wednesday, April 10 at The Journey Museum and Learning Center.
Both sessions are scheduled to begin with a community bison stew supper at 5:30 p.m. following by the presentation and activities at 6 p.m. Both events are hosted by the Rapid City Historic Preservation Commission and the City's Department of Community Development, with assistance from local firm Vantage Point Historical Services.
The Commission is beginning the process of revising and updating its Historic Context Report and Comprehensive Plan. The effort will continue through 2019 and the purpose of the meetings is to capture new perspectives on the City's history and how these perspectives and memories can make the town stronger and better prepared for future challenges.
"Historic preservation is about understanding the relationship between a community's past, present and future and we are inviting the public to come forward and share their recollections and memories of important places and events in our community," said City Long-Range Planner Sarah Hanzel. "Part of our history is the stories shared from one generation to another and those recollections and perspectives can be important as communities evolve."
