Why Your Neighborhood May Be Getting An Upgrade!

David Maahs, Executive Vice President of Economic Development, Greater Des Moines Partnership, joins Jeff to talk about how "opportunity zones" may result in an upgrade to your neighborhood. During the conversation, David defines what "an opportunity zone" and how the concept was created; lists the Central Iowa towns that have areas that qualify as opportunity zones, and discusses the possible big changes that neighbors could see in these towns. Plans have already begun in one such zone: the Drake neighborhood is due to get a major facelift over the next few years involving millions of dollars in private investment and development.
