Destination Rapid City is trying to ease the stress that comes with struggling to find a parking space downtown.
President of the organization, Dan Senftner, says the company will match up to $2 million of the cities parking budget if they agree to build a new parking ramp, or lot in the downtown area.
Senftner says he wants the parking to be between Omaha and Quincy streets, and 4th and 9th streets since that is the core of the downtown area.
He says the city has a $2.8 million parking budget and thinks with the help of Destination Rapid City, they can build a place for plenty of people to park and enjoy downtown.
"At this point we're seeing so much activity and so many different things going on right now that we need is a place for people to spend more time downtown and enjoy the day and spend it shopping and dining," said Senftner.
The decision is up to the public works department. Destination Rapid City will give a more thorough presentation at the public works meeting on Nov. 25th.
