MITCHELL, SD -
The Minneapolis-based firm hired to develop a new vision for the Corn Palace in Mitchell has developed seven strategies to transform the building.
Tom Meyer of Meyer Scherer & Rockcastle says three of the ideas seem to be
the most promising. Meyer declined to give an exact figure, but said all the ideas call for an investment in the millions.
The city of Mitchell is paying Meyer, Scherer and Rockcastle $115,500 to study the potential to renovate and expand the tourist attraction. The study is examining the mechanical, electrical and structural integrity of the 90-year-old building and looking at the potential for development and renovation within the palace.
The ideas will be presented soon to the Chamber of Commerce's tourism development committee.
