South Dakota Governor Noem Signs Zoning Reform

PIERRE, South Dakota (STL.News) Governor Noem has signed HB 1094, which simplifies city zoning regulations and eases the permitting process for homebuilders and homeowners in South Dakota.

“South Dakota’s housing market is booming, and that’s tremendous news, but we don’t want home prices to skyrocket as a result,” said Governor Kristi Noem.  “We’re continuing to streamline zoning regulations in our state, this time at the city level.  This will help cost of living remain affordable for South Dakotans.  And it will have the added benefit of spurring housing development to keep up with the folks moving to South Dakota who want to share our freedom and way of life.”

Governor Noem also signed twenty other good-government bills into law:

  • SB 36 authorizes the Department of Human Services to dismantle and demolish the Dakota Hall and the root cellar and restores grounds on the South Dakota Developmental Center campus.
  • SB 57 revises provisions regarding the South Dakota state employee health plan.
  • SB 65 creates an exception to the dual compensation prohibition for state employees for military service.
  • SB 75 corrects an error in a statutory cross-reference within the Uniform Limited Liability Company Act.
