Help us strengthen the University Avenue Corridor

Post Date:05/01/2020 8:48 AM
The Cities of West Des Moines and Clive have joined forces to create a coordinated redevelopment plan for the University Avenue Corridor.

Located between 22nd Street/NW 86th Street and I-35/80, this stretch of University Avenue is a long-standing center for retail and office within the Des Moines metro area.

Over time, changes to the metro and retail and office development have shifted the dynamics of the corridor and impacted many properties.

Officials from both cities recognize the importance of keeping the area thriving and are committed to implementing a plan to strengthen the resiliency of this important corridor.

To obtain the community’s input and help guide decision-making and prioritization for this plan, the Cities have set up a project website with a series of engagement exercises that will be open to the public through June 30.

You can take part in a mapping activity by sharing your ideas with us and by highlighting areas of the corridor that you like and areas that need improvement. You also can take a short survey and help us prioritize possible improvements to the area.
