Volunteers needed

Sioux Falls residents have a new opportunity to directly participate with City staff to shape the future of downtown.

Planning and Development Services is forming resident work groups to provide their thoughts on the 2035 Downtown Plan. This opportunity provides residents the ability to use their talents and knowledge to benefit the community.

The mission of the resident work groups is to provide insight and vision to a variety of downtown elements that will be reflected in the final 2035 Downtown Plan.

Volunteers will be assigned to teams who have shared interests and experiences. Through July and August, each resident work group will meet up to four times throughout the 2035 Downtown Plan visioning process.

About the 2035 Downtown Plan

The 2035 Downtown Plan will be assembled to create a vision that stimulates a vibrant downtown and supports a variety of developments and amenities over the next 10 years. It will be a look forward at the next decade and it will be a guiding document for the community to implement the collective vision.

Previously, the City’s 2025 Downtown Plan directly led to:

  • Expanded residential options with projects such as Washington Square, Cascade Lofts, Jones 421 and Railyard Flats.
  • Promotion of arts and culture through the Levitt Shell, reopening of the State Theater, and Orpheum Theater. The outdoor spaces of downtown also benefited from the continuation of SculptureWalk, as well as new murals.
  • Improved walkability through projects like the Main Avenue road diet, 8th Street Bridge refurbishing, new mid-block crossings and bump outs.
  • Creation of new park spaces by supporting the Kirby Dog Park at Fort Sod and the future Jacobson Plaza at Falls Park.
