Urban planners at City Hall are gearing up for the next decade of Sioux Falls development with an eye on building on momentum that’s already transforming downtown.
The Mayor’s Office and the Sioux Falls Planning and Development Services Department this month are launching what they’re calling the Horizon 2035 Downtown Plan, which will be developed in the coming months as the city gathers information, studies the city’s core and learns from a citizen advisory committee.
