It's no secret Spearfish is growing, the number of people moving there is on the rise and recently City leaders voted to annex more property into the city.
Newly elected Mayor Dana Boke says for the last few years Spearfish has grown by 3%.
While the mayor says growth is a good thing she also says the city needs to prepare for it.
That's why city leaders voted to annex 50 acres north of Spearfish for commercial use.
In addition Boke says Spearfish school enrollment continues to climb and while the district has managed to finagle enough space to accommodate the increase, if the trend continues there will have to be some changes.
Boke says Spearfish has a lot to offer making it a great place to live.
"We offer a lot of opportunity and a lot of development in a lot of different areas, so spearfish is really expanding so you can live in the country and still be within the city," said Boke.
Spearfish's current population is 10,685 and growing.
