Moville Comprehensive Plan

Moville, IA | Public Works

Overview

ISG updated the City of Moville’s comprehensive plan while also preparing a capital improvement plan.


Opportunity

Despite steady growth, the City of Moville had not updated its comprehensive plan in decades.

Solution

The City of Moville is a growing community in northwestern Iowa. The City is part of the Sioux City metropolitan statistical area, and serves as a bedroom community for the greater Sioux City area. While the City has grown, the Comprehensive Plan for the City had not been updated for nearly 20 years. Providing assistance with a complete update to the Comprehensive Plan while concurrently preparing a Capital Improvement Plan allowed the City to prepare for anticipated future growth.

An open house was held to solicit public input and a survey was conducted to assist in prioritizing needs from residents and community stakeholders. This outreach included community organizations such as the school, Chamber of Commerce, civic organizations, and city leaders.

The Comprehensive Plan included an analysis of current conditions and demographics including: parks, recreation, and natural resources, existing housing and future housing needs, land use, infrastructure, economic development opportunities, plus ordinance and policy review. The Review and Planning section of the Comprehensive Plan was prepared in accordance with the principles established in the 2010 Iowa Smart Planning legislation. The Plan outlines anticipated capital expenditures for the next five years, including water, wastewater, storm sewer, and street infrastructure, public buildings, and other major capital expenditures.
