Fort Pierre voting on part of Riverwalk Landing

Posted: Updated:

FORT PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Fort Pierre is holding a special election regarding a proposed $16 million development on the Missouri River.

Tuesday's vote is on the validity of a city-approved permit for a boat storage area at the proposed Riverwalk Landing project. The matter was referred by opponents who unsuccessfully also tried to refer zoning changes and a deferred development fee for the project.

Riverwalk Landing is to include a marina, restaurant and retail space. Supporters believe it will help the city by creating jobs, generating taxes and enhancing the area's quality of life. Opponents say the city is giving the proposed project preferential treatment.
