Comprehensive Plan -
Each municipality within the State of South Dakota is required by codified law, to develop and maintain on a 10-year cycle, a Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan is a guide for the future development of the community and is under the stewardship of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Please contact City Hall at 605-745-3135 for inquiries about our active Comprehensive Plan. Residents are welcome to review the progress we are making, submit suggestions or volunteer.
