Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether champions the new events space being built in his town. Now Rapid City is considering constructing a larger arena to host events. Sioux Falls’ CEO has a strong opinion about Rapid City’s potential expansion.
Crews are slated to break ground on Sioux Falls’ new events center this fall. Mayor Mike Huether says the facility should entice acts and events the city just doesn’t attract with its current facilities.
Now the state’s second-largest city is deciding whether to build a new events center of its own. Huether says he commends Rapid City leaders for thinking about growth and introducing new ideas.
"We need more of that in South Dakota, not less," Huether says. "And heck! If we have that Nickelback concert or Carrie Underwood concert or pro rodeo in Sioux Falls one day, we can send them out west and have it in Rapid City the next." Huether says he doesn’t consider other South Dakota towns competitors. He says a new events center in Rapid City would only help the lineup in Sioux Falls.
