Rapid City, SD

Post by arrowolf » Tue Jul 24, 2012 2:21 pm

I made the short list for a position with NPS based out of Rapid City. I visited there once but that was in 1996. What's the cost of living like around there? Is there a state income tax? Real estate pricies?

No state income tax. Cost of living is reasonable. My mom sold her house in Cali & bought 4 houses out here if that helps.

There's no state income tax in TX either. I don't think our real estate prices compare with CA though. As long as there are some decent houses in the 100-110k range, then that's good enough.

What's the state's policy for concealed/open carry? I've got a TX CHL but there's no open carry here.

I should know within 30-45 days if I'm their pick.

CCW with a very easy to get permit. $10 and just enough paperwork to make sure you're not a felon. OC no permit required. You should be able to find a pretty nice house in that price range. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Would love to have more ZSers in this area.

I'll just put it this way. My mom sold her three bedroom house in Cali and now owns four houses here.
