Thanks to Des Moines City Councillor Carl Voss for sharing the work Invest DSM is doing in our community!
Earlier this fall, Voss shared a city update where he highlighted some of the Special Investment Districts and homeowners that Invest DSM is currently working with.
Voss wrote: “These signs—now in about 200 yards—are the first evidence of Invest DSM, a nonprofit venture of Polk County and the City of Des Moines, created late last year to improve four targeted neighborhoods.
Earlier this year, Invest DSM awarded its first Block Challenge Grants to residents in all four neighborhoods: Oak Park/Highland Park, Drake, Franklin and Columbus Park. Among the first to sign up were homeowners on a four-block section along 44th Street, from University Avenue to College Avenue.”
