The Design Center is a distinctive resource within the Community Planning & Economic Development and Engineering Departments, assisting the City of Davenport with planning and urban design projects. The Design Center lends support to the myriad projects in the development of Home Page AnimationDavenport as a world-class city: pedestrian and recreational amenities along the river front, new housing and commercial centers, neighborhood revitalization efforts, parks design, context sensitive infill development, street and corridor redesign, and alternative transportation planning.


The task force for building a vital and vibrant city, however, is far greater than the capabilities of City Staff alone; it is a community endeavor. Soliciting public input in the design and development of our city spaces ensures lasting value within our neighborhoods and human settlements. As such, the Design Center has been established to serve another important and primary function of city building: community outreach.

Members of the public are invited to stop in and meet the designers. We welcome you to voice concerns, ask questions, and learn how you can help in the development of Davenport as a premier city to visit, live, work, and retire.
