WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9 – SPECIAL MEETING ON DRAFT HARD ROCK MINING ORDINANCE WITH THE PENNINGTON COUNTY PLANNING COMMISSION BEGINNING AT 5:00 PM MOUNTAIN – PENNINGTON COUNTY ADMINISTRATION BUILDING, 130 Kansas City St., Rapid City, SD.
Come and show that you are concerned about potential gold and other mining in Pennington County.
This event is really important to the protection of our water! We support the Ordinance, but there may be ways to strengthen it. We will post some things you might want to talk about either in a comment letter or at the Planning Commission meeting in a few days.
Plan to have your say on this important issue!
It is possible for a County to stop a mine – this happened in Lawrence County in 2021.
