Businesses enjoy high-quality employees, plentiful land and a climate conducive to growth and profitability.

Citizens and city officials foresaw growth coming to the Urbandale area, and began developing their vision for the future several years ago. They crafted a comprehensive growth plan to ensure balance among businesses, residents and government for a stable economy and to preserve our high quality of life. Some of the major endeavors undertaken in the last few years have enriched life for everyone, and made conducting a normal day’s business much more convenient. As a result, we have a lot to be proud of – and the planning for even more growth continues. We invite you to experience why our community is Uniquely Urbandale
