The Online Development Center is a compilation of information relating to land development in West Des Moines. It is an attempt to improve the communication aspect of the development process. The City’s intent is to provide information that is relevant to the development review process in one easy-to-use location. Ultimately, the City hopes this information is helpful to the development community in their efforts to develop in the City of West Des Moines. 

The City of West Des Moines has additional information regarding Business Incentives on this page:
