Birdland Park and Marina Master Plan

2100 Saylor Rd, Des Moines, IA 50313
The development of the proposed Birdland Park and Marina Master Plan was a community and stakeholder-driven effort which leveraged input from an estimated 200+ attendees across three public meetings and 350+ follow-up survey responses. The project Advisory Committee which provided additional direction to the consulting team led by SmithGroup included 23 individuals representing 18 unique interest groups, thus representing a broad cross-section of the community. Once complete and adopted, the full master plan document will be made available on this webpage.
