Custer, SD – My team of partners and investors would like to extend a heartfelt thank
you to the Governor’s Office, SD Public and School Lands, the Governor’s Office of Economic
Development and the Custer Area Economic Development Corporation. Without their assistance and
information, we could not have completed this task.
We would like to announce that SLIC-e and the State have closed on the property, and SLIC-e’s
excitement to dig into the hard work ahead of us. To celebrate that, we are having an open house and
ribbon “slicing” on Friday, May 18 at 10 am. Tours and refreshments will be available on site (12279
Brady Dr, Custer, SD 57730).
As the changes to this property take place over the coming year, we believe that the Custer area
residents will be pleased with its low environmental impact, innovative technology, beauty and, most
importantly, the jobs created. This will be a low impact, highly sustainable, light industrial campus that
makes use of cutting-edge technology to introduce new industries to our area, while also providing
much-needed space for commercial and light industrial concerns in the community. This will take the
form of a leased-space business park for businesses and other projects in the start-up, growth, R&D, or
As we finalize leasing contracts with tenants, we will announce those new additions to the Southern
Hills. In the meantime, we need to roll up our sleeves and begin the next stages of our operation.
Once again, I’d like to thank everyone who made the previous stage possible. Thank you for all that you
have done up to this point, and all you will be doing over the next year. I’d also like to thank the
community for your undying support of local initiatives and businesses. You make all things possible
