Should the Law School at the University of South Dakota relocate to Sioux Falls? A committee continues to seek input about the option, and SDPB's Jackie Hendry was in the room for the second meeting, yesterday in Sioux Falls.

Rapid City has a new housing development in the works that will provide five affordable new homes. It's a City Hall experiment that allows higher density in a neighborhood, which in turn drives down the price of each house. Over the past few years, the cost of housing has risen faster than wages. SDPB’s Lee Strubinger has the story.

The second annual South Dakota Technology Showcase brings together some of the country's biggest technology companies in Sioux Falls. At last week's convention, representatives from Tesla, AT&T, and Air Bus met with state's political and business leaders. SDPB's Andrew Bork takes you around the showcase to explore new ideas and technology challenges facing South Dakota.

In just a couple of weeks, Rapid City will have a new concert venue.  Ursa Major hopes to give more national touring acts a place to stop in between Denver and Minneapolis while attracting more regional talent. SDPB's Steve Zwemke visited with Jason Ward, technical coordinator and talent buyer for Ursa Major, on Tuesday.  Ward says there's a need in Rapid City for a new and different type of club.
