The sub-committees have met two times each to this point. We need at least one more meeting to wrap up their parts, utilities may need an additional meeting.

We will be working on economic development over the summer as well. The draft plan will be presented in the Fall and the parts will be worked out in the Planning & Zoning Commission meetings with the plan going to council for final approval at the end of the year.

The City of Mitchellville is embarking on an important once every 20-30 year project; The drafting of a new Comprehensive Plan. The plan will address a variety of issues for the City about it’s growth and development in the coming 20 years. They are broken down as follows: Economic Development, Land Use, Transportation, Utilities, Housing, Civic Facilities, and Parks, Recreation & Trails. Each of these areas will be given special attention and drafted by the people of Mitchellville. We strongly encourage the people of Mitchellville attend these meetings to have input into this important plan for Mitchellville’s future.

The outline was prepared by Iowa State University and gives us a structure to go by for our plan.

Currently, we need citizens to serve on Housing and Utilities sub-committees. There is no formal application. Just contact City Hall 967-2935. Each Committee will meet between 2-4 times. We know everyone has a busy lifestyle so we will only need the commitment of 60-90 minutes for each meeting.

The Planning & Zoning Commission will be starting into the Land Use Map and Plan in the June meeting. Committee meetings will begin in late Summer and carry into the Fall.

All meetings will be posted. If you have any questions, please contact City Hall.
