Take the survey to provide input for Spearfish's Comprehensive Plan

Comprehensive Plan Survey

SPEARFISH, SD - Thank you to everyone who came out for the comprehensive plan open house! It was very well attended.

Given the many amenities that it has to offer, Spearfish has become an increasingly popular place to call home. This is reflected by the 15 percent increase in population over the last 10 years. While growth is exciting, it also brings unique challenges for cities. 

In an effort to better understand the community as it sits today and ensure that the special character of Spearfish is preserved as the area grows and changes, the City is embarking on a participatory planning process to update the Spearfish Comprehensive Plan, a policy document that articulates the community’s vision and priorities, and guides decision-making for the future of Spearfish.

We invite everyone to provide input related to the comprehensive plan through this website, Home | Spearfish Adventure Ahead Survey (Logged in) (,or by scanning the QR code below. 

The website is the place for all Spearfish community members to share thoughts and suggestions that will shape the future land use plan and other plan recommendations. Know a place that could use more affordable housing? Interested in preserving agricultural or open space? Thoughts about how your neighborhood is growing? We need the input of all our friends and neighbors to guide the future of Spearfish together!
