A public meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday to discuss proposed improvements for the Railroad Buttes recreational area.
The meeting will be held Wednesday, July 24 at the RAMKOTA Best Western in Rapid City from noon to 8 p.m.
Buttes is one of our most popular recreational areas," shared Mike McNeill, Fall
River District Ranger. "We want the public to get involved and comment on
planned improvements at the site including adding gravel, picnic tables, public
toilets, and a Kiosk for information sharing at the main parking area."
McNeill says the plans also include unloading facilities and a "Tot Lot" for beginning riders to safely gain riding experience.
The purpose of the meeting is to give the pubic a chance to learn more about the proposed changes, review maps and share comments. Comments must be received within 30 days from July 11 to be considered in the final analysis for the plan.
