Who are We?

Scenic Rapid City Committee, Inc. is a coalition of residents who value the quality of life in Rapid City. Our supporters include citizens and businesses who are concerned about the preservation to keep Rapid City Scenic.  Our primary mission is to work with our legislators and other elected officials and to enlist their support in reducing visual clutter in the community.

The coalition's members have no political or pecuniary interest in this subject other than as it affects them and their fellow residents.

Our Legal Team

We want to extend sincere appreciation for the fine work provided by our attorneys on the current Citizen's Initiative petitions.  These have been carefully reviewed and written to protect the city and its citizens!

Be sure to thank them when you see them, and use them and refer them.  They believe in protecting and preserving our Scenic Rapid City.
