Future of Indianola
A Comprehensive Plan is a long-range policy guide to decisions about the physical development of a community. A plan generally does not provide a detailed design for the development of specific sites; instead, it sets out broad policy directions for growth, development, and redevelopment. Indianola's Comprehensive Plan analyzes and incorporates a wide variety of components, including the natural environment, population, land use, transportation, parks and trails, infrastructure, services and facilities, and growth management. As a result, Indianola's Comprehensive Plan provides a vision of Indianola’s future, helping to guide the growth of the community.
Good city planning proactively manages growth by preparing for the future and anticipating the needs of established businesses and residents. The 2020 Indianola Strategic Plan reflects the input of engaged citizens, community and business partners, elected officials, and city staff.
The city's current wastewater treatment plant was constructed in 1978 and designed for a population of 11,600 residents. With the current facility beyond its useful life of 30 years, aging infrastructure, and stricter regulations, replacement of the current plant is necessary. This page has been created to provide updates, progress reports, and other information to aid in answering questions regarding the new wastewater treatment plant project.
