well Sioux City is much older than Sioux Falls and when your city gets old it gets a little dirty so when Sioux Falls gets older its probably going to get a little dirty and the smell has never bothered me and i go to Sioux City once a week from the country

When you get one city in a grouping like that that does diversify and grow, it is hard for the others to keep up. Just my theory.
a hey, that's most of the citys in Iowa

Very important to try to keep a city 'clean' feeling. Sioux City is not clean feeling while Des Moines to me seemed amazingly clean, but I don't want to pay a state income tax just to have things more clean. (though it's not helping out Sioux City) There's a balance. I don't know the politics of the two cities but Sioux Falls is probably more business friendly and progressive.

Some people around Brookings say Sioux Falls and Watertown are both 'dirty' and it's true Brookings is a clean town but I still prefer Watertown and Sioux Falls more for their amenities... shopping, recreation, etc. Luckily it's easy enough to simply drive to either one. In any case I'd like to see Sioux Falls be a 'clean' fast growing city.

One factor is that South Dakota is the freest state in the nation in economic terms, while Iowa is middle of the pack. That's the same reason why Texas is booming and California is stagnating.
