Rapid City is looking at ways to increase affordable housing. One proposal is to pass an ordinance permitting Accessory Dwelling Units such as mother-in-law apartments or converted garages. These units would be allowed in neighborhoods zoned for single-family houses where the property owner lives on site. Employees of Rapid City's Community Development Department hosted an open house at the downtown library on Wednesday, Feb. 28.
