Web Site of the Year

President of Rapid City Economic Development
2004 Governor’s Conference on Economic Development.
A new award was created this year to honor outstanding
economic development web sites. The governor presented this award
to Deadwood, a community of less than 5,000, and to Rapid City,
a community of more than 5,000.
“Studies show that 72 percent of business site selection
decision makers are getting their information from the web,” said
Gov. Rounds, “so it’s imperative that our communities
continue to constantly upgrade their websites.”
