Rapid City soccer complex jumps another hurdle


Rapid City's Legal and Finance Committee approves a motion Wednesday to allocate millions to fund a new soccer complex. But the Rapid City Youth Soccer League still has one more hurdle to jump.

The full city council must vote to release the vision fund money totaling $2.2 million before the project can enter the next phase.

Legal and finance Committee members says the public has a right to share concern about bankrolling the soccer complex project. But Ward 2 Alderman Steve Laurenti says the City has done it for the swim center, Roosevelt Park and the ice hockey rink.

"The bottom line is we've done it before and the only difference here is we have a third party, which is the Rapid City Youth Soccer League," said Laurenti. "The fact of the matter is I think it's something our staff is more than capable of handling if it's a matter of co-managing."

The soccer complex project has been in talks since 2005. The full council will vote on the issue Monday night.
