The RISE program was established to promote economic development in Iowa through 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.

Cumming: Up to $1,318,135 from the city share of the RISE Fund was approved for an Immediate Opportunity grant to assist in the widening of approximately 1,730 feet of Cumming Avenue and paving of 510 feet of 50th Street located on the west side of town. This project is necessary to provide improved access to the proposed site of Hy-Vee Warehouse, a distribution warehouse and office, to support the creation of 136 new full-time jobs and $135,329,534 in associated capital investment. This project is anticipated to be completed by August 2022.

This project is necessary to provide access to two lots totaling more than 44 acres for industrial purposes. This project is anticipated to be completed by December 2022.
