Prairie Trail Looking West

The City of Ankeny has hired a consultant team to update our zoning and subdivision regulations, as recommended in our newly adopted Comprehensive Plan, The Ankeny Plan 2040. Over the next year and a half, Confluence, Kendig Keast Collaborative, White and Smith, LLC, and Snyder & Associates will engage with the public and rewrite the regulations to:
 
  • Implement the land use policies of the new Comprehensive Plan
  • Improve the review and approval process for new development
  • Incorporate site and building design standards to ensure continued quality design
  • Preserve and enhance various types of community character throughout Ankeny
  • Create a user-friendly, illustrative code

The project kicked off Oct. 29 & 30  with a series of focus group meetings with residents and other community stakeholders.
