Envision Adel 2040 - City of Adel Comprehensive Plan Update

The City of Adel is excited to kick-off Envision Adel 2040, an update to the City’s 2009 Comprehensive Plan.

The new plan will address land use, housing, commercial and industrial development, sustainability and the environment, transportation and infrastructure, parks and recreation, and community facilities and services.

The process began in late 2018 and is expected to conclude by the end of 2019. Several public meetings and/or opportunities for feedback will be available in 2019.

The City has engaged Confluence to lead this effort. Confluence has partnered with McClure Engineering, the City’s engineering firm.


Community Survey Now Available

Please consider taking our Community Survey for Envision Adel 2040, which will be available through March 2019.  So far, over 350 people have completed the survey!

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if you do not live in Adel. Please be honest, as your feedback is critical.

An appendix with all results and responses will be included in the final Envision Adel 2040 plan. The results may also be shared on this page once the survey closes.
