Storm Lake Downtown Assessment Public Presentation Scheduled Next Week

The findings of a Storm Lake downtown assessment project will be shared during a public presentation next Thursday, April 25th at 1:30pm in the council chambers at Storm Lake City Hall.

The City of Storm Lake will also receive a written report to help guide future planning efforts for the central business district.

The downtown assessment is a three-day process coordinated with the Iowa Economic Development Authority. Storm Lake is hosting a team of experienced downtown development professionals who have worked with communities of varying sizes throughout the Midwest. During the assessment visit, the team will meet with community representatives including business owners and retailers, industry leaders, educators, students, economic development leaders, contractors, the finance and real estate communities, longtime residents, and other groups.
