Rapid City council 'kicks' plan into gear

Posted:

Rapid city council members listened to several proposed community project pitches and updates at a special meeting Monday night. One win belonged to Rapid City soccer.

A plan for 12 new soccer fields was approved and should be ready for use in only two years.    

"The group that has been put together to raise funds that will go along with the cities money is very excited and very optimistic that we're going to be able to put together a wonderful program in plan for the city of Rapid City," said soccer complex supporter Roger Tellinghuisen. "Something that you can be very very proud of."    

The biggest road block for Dakota Fields will be the cost of an irrigation system.

Treated water for the project would cost about $125,000 annually.

The council agreed to provide the project more than $600,00 from the city utility fund; however, such funding would have to be approved by the full council.

Tellinghuisen thanked The Abby Group for their continual support and donations for the complex.

Project leaders also plan on finding other funds by selling the name of the complex, which is currently Dakota Fields.

The entire cost of the project is $4.1 million.
