DEADWOOD — An original ag use request that would have required a conditional use permit in suburban residential zoning in upper and lower valley in Spearfish has spurred an amendment to the allowed and conditional use portions of Lawrence County’s current suburban residential district (SRD) regulations.

Lawrence County Planning and Zoning Director Amber Vogt presented the proposed changes with the Lawrence County Commission, along with a proposed special overlay zoning map showing potential ag tourism areas in the current Upper and Lower Valley zoning.
