Visit Rapid City

On June 5, Rapid City voters decide whether to build a new arena at the Rapid City Civic Center complex.
The $130 million for the new arena would come from a unique funding source, in fact, it’s the same fund created to build the civic center in 1975.
However, just like in 2015, the last time voters turned down a new arena, not everyone is convinced on the project.

City leaders must at least repurpose the Barnett Arena and make the 40-year-old building comply with current accessibility requirements.
