You’ve probably seen the news about the Buffalo Chip wanting to incorporate into its own municipality. The Chip has stayed unusually quiet during all of this, but now that the Meade County Commissioners Office has accepted the petition, we can let the cat out of the bag… By the time the 75th Sturgis Rally arrives, it's likely the Buffalo Chip will have become the first biker municipality in the world! That’s right Buffalo Chip Campground, LLC will sit within the town of Buffalo Chip, South Dakota.
"We're extremely excited for the opportunities that come with the town of Buffalo Chip’s incorporation," says Buffalo Chip President Rod Woodruff. "Big things are definitely in the Chip’s future. The incorporation allows for improved economic development opportunities within the municipal boundaries that will benefit the entire region. We are looking forward to strengthening our relationship with the city of Sturgis to mutually promote these opportunities."
The registered voters and founding members of Buffalo Chip, SD will vote on May 7, 2015 in an election to approve the incorporation.
