Elmore Corners redevelopment plan overlay district aims to raise the bar in Davenport, IA

DAVENPORT, IA: When Davenport aldermen take up the final reading of the ordinance creating the Elmore Corners Overlay District at the next city council meeting, they likely will need to decide if one of the biggest developers in the area will be included in the district. 

According to the site plan the overlay district aims to create new building design guidelines that will require buildings to “contribute to the Elmore Corners destination appearance,” according to the site plan drawn up by architectural and economic development firm of Vandewalle & Associates of Madison, Wisconsin. Other components aim to make the area attractive to businesses and shoppers as well as making it bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly.

The overlay is located on about 264 acres on the northeast side of Davenport at the intersection of interstates 80 and 74.
