The RISE program was established to promote economic development in Iowa through the construction or improvement of roads and streets.  Iowa cities and counties are eligible for funding in the form of a grant, loan, or combination thereof.  Projects must involve construction or improvement of a public roadway.  There are two RISE project types: 1) Immediate Opportunity, and 2) Local Development.  More information is available at https://iowadot.gov/systems_planning/Grant-Programs/Revitalize-Iowas-Sound-Economy-RISE-Program.

Bondurant: Up to $1,065,032 from the city share of the RISE Fund was approved for a Local Development grant to assist in the construction of approximately 490 feet of Shiloh Rose Parkway and 853 feet of 23rd Street SW located on the southwest side of town. This project is necessary to provide access to 38 acres for light industrial purposes. This project is anticipated to be completed by June 2021.
