July 19th, Tueda.Where: Commission Chambers, 130 Kansas City St, Rapid City, SD 57701, USA (map),
The meeting will likely start at 9 am, but the Draft Hard Rock Mining Ordinance will be the last item on the agenda & likely won’t be reviewed before 10:30 am (please check agenda when published).
UPDATE FROM July 5th Meeting
– The Commission did not make a final decision but continued review of the draft ordinance to next July meeting, – July 19th, at the end of the agenda. They expressed interest in a final decision on Ordinance maybe on August 16th, but I expect we need to see what happens on July 19th. Both sides (pro and anti mining) expressed need for more time and review. Commission wants clarity on whether they can be more stringent than state law or rule. So please continue to send written comments and plan to attend on July 19th. The staff want the written comments to arrive by Wednesday at 4 pm the week before the hearing.
