Capitol Neighborhoods of Des Moines became a Hometown Pride Community in late 2014 and is coached by Beth Hicks.
Capitol East, Capitol Park and MLK Jr. Park neighborhoods make up this group with a diverse population of around 7,500. Residents, business owners and other key partners, including the Des Moines Police Department and Des Moines Public Schools, connect regularly through steering committee and work group meetings as well as project-specific planning. As part of the Viva East Bank! collaborative, this group focuses on community building and programming, housing, public spaces and infrastructure and business communities to reach neighborhood goals approved by the City of Des Moines.
Keep Iowa Beautiful continues to support the continued mission of the program in the Capitol Neighborhoods. To learn more about the successes of this program, view our 2017-2018 Annual Report.
