Making Belle Plaine a place that celebrates its historic downtown and focuses on the community’s vibrant future.
We envision our community members being proud of the place they call home and embracing the businesses we have here. A place that has all you need to live, grow, and thrive.
A MainStreet Iowa Community
The BPCDC coordinates the Main Street Iowa program in Belle Plaine. March 4, 2008, the city of Belle Plaine received the Main Street Iowa Community designation from the Iowa Economic Development Authority. As a designated Main Street Iowa Community, Belle Plaine is part of a state and national downtown revitalization program focused on promoting economic development through historic preservation.
The Main Street Iowa program works with a select group of communities committed to exceptionally high standards for downtown economic development. As a Main Street America™ Coordinating Program, over 50 communities in Iowa are connected to a network of 40 programs across the country representing over 1,200 communities.
