Capital Crossroads Vision Plan - First quarterly report now available

Feb. 27, 2012

The Capital Crossroads: A Vision for Greater Des Moines and Central Iowa first quarterly report since its fall launch is available online. Capital Crossroads: A Vision for Greater Des Moines & Central Iowa is a five year regional roadmap with a geographic scope defined by a 50-mile radius around Central Iowa with the State Capitol at the center. The plan capitalizes on Iowa's strengths and on tactics that include developing a bio-science corridor between Ames and Des Moines, encouraging more business start-ups, expanding local greenways, strengthening the arts and cultural community, building the next generation of diverse community leaders and establishing the region as a wellness capital. The Community Foundation and Greater Des Moines Partnership led the planning initiative and continue to be involved in implementation.
