Indianola Downtown Assessment
​The City is partnering with Warren County Economic Development and Indianola Chamber of Commerce to conduct an assessment of our downtown Square.  The assessment will be conducted by the Iowa Economic Development Authority's Downtown Resource Center.  The assessment visit is scheduled for September 25 - 27, 2018.
 
Chamber businesses and community members are invited to provide their input.   We hope to get as many people involved as possible during the 3-day assessment to get a broad perspective from the community.   There are three opportunities to get involved:
