Casino gets approval from Sioux Falls planning commission

Mar 18, 2019 9:27 AM

The Sioux Falls Planning Commission this month approved a conditional-use permit for a casino and strip mall to be built near a residential area in the south of the city.

The Sioux Falls Argus Leader reports that the commission approved the permit despite a recommendation from the city's urban planning department to reject the project because it was not an appropriate site to sell alcohol. The planning staff also noted the City Council denied a similar permit request in 2015 at the same location.

The planning commission serves as an advisory board to the City Council and offers recommendations on land use and zoning matters.

The developers behind the Sioux Falls network of Deuces and Crown casinos submitted plans for the casino and attached strip mall project at a recent meeting.
