The City of Des Moines has selected RDG to prepare a Corridor Plan for Douglas Avenue, from Merle Hay Road east to the Des Moines River. The goal of this planning effort is to develop a revitalization strategy that establishes community consensus for a desired outcome, and creates an implementation plan to be used by the City, developers, and others as a guide for future development and redevelopment of the Douglas Avenue Corridor.
