On April 16, 2018 the Vermillion City Council established a Business Improvement District in accordance with South Dakota Codified Law 9-55. A board of directors is appointed by the City Council to make recommendations on the use of the funds. All expenditures must be approved by the City Council. The goal of this Board is to assist with the implementation of the Downtown Streetscape Plan.

The Downtown Streetscape Plan

The concept plan for the Vermillion Downtown Streetscape is intended to provide a unified vision for downtown improvements that will result in a safer and more welcoming downtown experience. With the exception of the construction of the pocket park and the plaza in 2009, the last major sidewalk improvement project downtown occurred in the late 70’s early 80’s. The recent sidewalk survey identified several items of concern, including ADA accessibility and isolated pavement condition issues. This master plan will provide flexible guidance for improvement projects to ensure the development of a cohesive downtown environment. This plan prepares the City to move forward with downtown projects with a uniform vision as opportunities occur. Opportunities include, but are not limited to: City initiated capital improvement projects, utility updates or repairs, isolated sidewalk projects, and grant opportunities.
