City Square Master Plan


In 2018, the City, along with the Indianola Chamber of Commerce and Warren County Economic Development Corporation (WCEDC) partnered with the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) to conduct an assessment of the Downtown Square. The Downtown Assessment Visit Report provided recommendation to engage in a streetscape design process.

The City Square Master Plan provides an opportunity to create unifying and sustainable streetscape enhancements, as well as improving downtown infrastructure to support downtown economic activity for years to come.
