Mayors Corner

We will be holding Town Hall Meetings in the coming weeks in an effort to share more information and gather feedback about public facility needs of the community and how they may be addressed with the proposed Clive Town Center project along the 114th Street Corridor. The next scheduled Town Hall Meetings:

Saturday, June 14
YMCA Healthy Living Center Rm #5
9:00 – 10:30 a.m.

Wednesday, June 18 
City of Clive Council Chambers
5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

These first Town Hall Meetings will focus on The City’s extensive research into public facility needs and how they may affect Clive in the future. The City wants to ensure that Clive residents continue to receive the high level of service, quality and efficiencies you have come to expect as the population grows from 16,200 to an expected 23,000 in 15 years.

Since future growth affects all residents of the community, it is important that the City of Clive receives feedback on facility needs to ensure concerns are heard and needs are met while planning for the future.

We encourage you to learn more about this project and continue to provide us your feedback at Facebook event pages for the Town Hall Meetings are available on the City of Clive’s Facebook page at — where you can also follow us for updates on the project and community happenings and news. Get updates via your email by signing up for our e-newsletter that is focused on this development project at

As always, it is an honor and a privilege to serve as your Mayor.  Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions you may have.
