Hwy 14 Corridor Study

Proposed Zoning Changes - 2020

The City is now in the implementation phase of the Highway 14 Corridor Study and has been working for several months on proposed zoning changes along the corridor. The Plan Zoning Commission has held several work sessions and is proposing the creation of a new MU, Mixed Use District. They have also been reviewing the proposed areas to be included in an amendment to the Zoning Map.

This is an extensive process which will include several public meetings. The next meeting is an Informational Open House. The open house will be held on Thursday, January 16, 2020 from 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM in the City Council Chambers at 10 W. State Street. There will not be a formal presentation during this time, the intention is to allow for an opportunity to provide comments and ask questions.

The following documents include maps and proposed text amendments to the zoning ordinance.

If you would like additional information or would like to provide a comment on the proposal please contact the zoning office at 641-754-5756 or submit a comment by CLICKING HERE

Final Highway 14 Plan (large file)


The City hired Bolton & Menk to complete a study of the area from Anson Street to the Iowa River along the 3rd Avenue/Hwy 14 Corridor. The study looked at items such as land use, transportation and community appearance.

This study was funded thanks to the Martha-Ellen Tye Foundation, the Region 6 Planning Commission/Iowa DOT and the City of Marshalltown. 

The final public presentation was held May 2, 2018 and the plan was presented to the City Council May 29, 2018 for acceptance.
