The City began implementation of zoning changes recommended in the plan in 2020 prior to the pandemic. Due to limitations in public gatherings we did not move items forward during calendar year 2020. In late 2020 we began a comprehensive re-write of the entire zoning ordinance which includes the Mixed-Use District proposed for the corridor. To learn more about this process CLICK HERE.
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.
