I don't know how many people on this forum are from Sioux Falls, or South Dakota for that matter, but I know a lot of you are from Minnesota and other midwest states. I was wondering if anyone has heard of the Phillips to the Falls project that has just been completed less than a year ago. It's goal is to develop more small businesses along the path to the Falls. The major thing that's straining Sioux Falls' downtown development is its industrialized north half and the lack of stores that stay open later. Our city is also hoping (real soon) to plan for an events center not too far from the Phillips project. The only concern is parking for this place and if it will attract any out of town visitors and possibly stimulate development downtown, and possibly relocate some of the cruddy industrialized things like the railroads. Does anyone else know of a situation where something similar has happened in their city? If so what was the outcome? Feel free to say whatever you feel too.
