Where should Douglas Avenue be heading in the future?

The City of Des Moines and Douglas Avenue Coalition are beginning a process to create a Strategic Plan for the Douglas Avenue Corridor. The strategic planning area includes properties along Douglas Avenue, from Merle Hay Road to the Des Moines River (shown below). The Plan will guide the future evolution and sustainability of the district under a unified and coordinated document.

The planning process is starting with a short survey to understand your perspective of Douglas Avenue and its potential. The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes.

There will be numerous opportunities to discuss your ideas, and your response to this survey will lay the groundwork for the new plan. Thank you in advance for responding!
