The Mayor and City Council met on Tuesday, November 15, for a regular meeting.

The City Council set a public hearing for Tuesday, December 13, to consider the construction of a solar array on the roof of the new Parks & Public Works Maintenance Facility. The City will get bids for a 225 kW system and a 170 kW system and have the Council make a decision at a future council meeting.

Urbandale continues to grow north and west. The Council approved a site plan for 52 single-family attached townhomes near 142nd Street and Waterford Road.

At the end of the meeting the Mayor and City Council thanked all staff involved in making the opening night of Miracle on 86th Street a success. The park features 50,000 holiday lights, a large custom-built train, larger-than-life ornamental displays, an ice-skating rink, and holiday-themed events and all season long. The park will remain decorated for the next eight weeks.

The Mayor and City Council will meet again for a meeting on Tuesday, November 29. Read More.
