Building Today For Tomorrow

Rock Rapids is "Building Today for Tomorrow" with excellent educational opportunities, a diverse business structure, family-oriented community facilities, and quality health care.

Rock Rapids is located in extreme northwest Iowa, at the junction of Iowa Highway 9 and US Highway 75 32 miles southeast of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and only 15 miles south of Interstate 90. Our 2,549 residents enjoy the benefits of small town living with easy access to the larger communities of Sioux Falls, the Twin Cities, and Omaha. We invite you to take a look around our web site, but we hope we get the chance to meet you in person!

City government is led by mayor Jason Chase and city council members Eric Borman, Scott Schneidermann, Steve Wells, Cody Hoefert and Marlene Bowers. Jordan Kordahl serves as city clerk. The community has an active Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Corporation.
