WHERE WE WORK
Special Investment Districts (SIDs) are areas in the City of Des Moines where a unique combination of public and private resources are being focused to strengthen middle market neighborhoods. The City designated four pilot areas to focus and test strategies to strengthen middle neighborhoods.
Residents, homeowners, potential homeowners, developers, contractors, business owners, commercial property owners — all have a role to play in making the Special Investment Districts stronger over the coming decade. For that reason, Invest DSM offers several programs that respond to the market’s needs and is seeking to partner with a wide variety of neighborhood stakeholders.
