In 2018, parts of the Drake Neighborhood were selected as one of four Special Investment Districts by the City of Des Moines. This initiative brings together public and private effort and funding to strengthen the neighborhood.
In partnership with Invest DSM and the City of Des Moines, the neighborhood established a plan for the community. Check out the Invest DSM page to read an overview of the plan for the Drake Neighborhood. You can read the full action plan by clicking here.
