Board on Geographic Names Seeks Public Input
South Dakota Ag Connection - 04/05/2021

The South Dakota Board on Geographic Names (SDBGN) seeks public input on a name for an unnamed summit in Rapid City. There has been one name proposed for the hill: Smelter Hill. The hill is located on the School of Mines campus near O'Hara Stadium. The board is soliciting public input on the proposed name.

The SDBGN follows the guidance from the U.S. Board on Geographic Names. The guidelines state that preferred names be descriptive of topographic forms suggested by local history, folklore, or incident, or by associated natural life or other phenomena, including American Indian or other ethnic names appropriate to the area. If a proposed name duplicates another feature in the state, it should not create confusion by being in close proximity. Also if a personal name is proposed, it must be determined in the public interest to honor the person or family for historical or commemorative reasons, and that person must have been deceased at least five years.

Comments should be submitted no later than May 14.
