(S.D.)-Deadwood Commission Makes $2 Mill Commitment To Plaza Project
DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - By a 3-2 margin Monday night, the Deadwood City Commission approved a recommendation by the historic preservation commission to commit $2 million toward two proposed downtown plazas.
The Deadwood Revitalization Committee hopes the two Main Street plazas will become public gathering places for residents and visitors.
Deadwood Historic Preservation Officer Kevin Kuchenbecker says the funds and plans will first be vetted through the appropriate state and national entities governing historic preservation before any funds are disbursed.
City officials hope their $2 million pledge will attract other public and private commitments to the plaza to help reduce the city's overall financial contribution to the project.
Mayor Chuck Turbiville and Commissioner Mark Speirs were the dissenting votes on the commitment.
