The 6th Street Sub-Area will see Warren County Secondary Roads leave as they relocate facilities south of Indianola. This will leave a 6.4 acre site, located adjacent to a 1.5 acre public works facility for the City of Indianola. The City of Indianola recognizes the need to create a vision for the future of the Sub-Area to guide growth and development in the heart of the community. The current condition of the Sub-Area provides opportunity to change the site from light industrial to mixed-use commercial and residential. The visioning process for this plan was done with the goal of uniting a community towards the overall goal of improving the community at its core to benefit all community members.
This is accomplished through a thriving district or town center that consists of pedestrian amenities, consumer locations that provide basic necessities, and areas of interest that give residents and visitors alike a reason to linger and stay in the heart of the community. This plan serves as the impetus for creating, focusing, and implementing that vision. This plan is to be used as a guide for the future of the Sub-Area and is not being used to buy or force business owners or residents out of their current establishments.
