Community Planning Overview:

Bettendorf is rapidly growing, with northward expansion toward Interstate 80. With this growth comes tremendous opportunity for economic development, new housing options, expansions to the parks system, and more. Meanwhile, the downtown and riverfront face considerable opportunity with the reconstruction of the Interstate 74 bridge. The planning process involved over 500 people and an extensive outreach program that included going directly to citizens in schools, at community celebrations, and in local clubs. The plan includes a detailed implementation strategy, focusing on the costs and benefits of annexing growth areas, and the commissioning of a new zoning ordinance to provide more flexibility for both the developer and city through intensity-based land use.
