RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A Rapid City woman is trying to block a four-story replica of the Statue of Liberty planned at a water park complex being built in the city.

Lesa Walter lives about half a mile from the site of the proposed 45-foot-tall statue. She says the statue that would be lit up at night would be an eyesore.

Walter is the only resident to file a formal appeal. But the Rapid City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1r9l6eU ) that City Councilwoman Amanda Scott has expressed concerns about the project’s size and about whether the public was given proper notice of the plans.

The City Council is to decide Oct. 6 whether to allow the statue planned by the developers of the Rippin’ Rapids water park.
