Comprehensive Plan Comments

Thank you for the tremendous input received thus far!  As you are aware, we are keeping the public comment phase open until Friday, November 22, 2019. Please visit www.elevateindianola.com to review the draft comprehensive plan, the draft implementation plan, the posters that were used at the open house, the results of the community survey, as well as other documents related to the update of the Comprehensive Plan. Please note that these are not final documents, and the goal of the open house and public comments is to present what has been prepared to date and seek feedback on how we are progressing with crafting the vision. A copy of the draft plan and all of the display posters used at the open house may also be viewed at City Hall.  Staff is currently and will continue to work with our consultants to go through comments and begin implementation of our next steps in the project. Information will be forthcoming via the weekly emails and other city communication tools.
