RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Rapid City plans to spend $7.3 million in the next five years to spruce up its parks.

The plan approved by an advisory board includes projects targeted for municipal golf courses, trails, cemeteries and playgrounds.

The Rapid City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1c0IeqM) that money for the improvements will come from half of a one-cent local sales tax. The tax is expected to generate more than $60 million for citywide improvements, most of which will go toward streets and drainage projects.

The city will also set aside about $350,000 to buy new land for parks.
