Working in partnership with the City of Moline, Renew Moline assists in preparing projects plans and successfully navigating the economic development assistance and project approval processes.
Over the past 15 years we have established a unique approach to working with developers and property owners known as the Design/Build Management Team and the Project Management Team.
This DBMT process has resulted in the John Deere Commons and Bass Street Landing projects, as well as myriad smaller, impactful projects. The PMT process was first developed to implement the Moline Centre Plan, but has become an immeasurable asset to each new, impactful project in the downtown area.

AWARD-WINNING DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
Renew Moline, Inc. and the City of Moline have been recognized by the International Economic Development Council with their 2006 International Economic Development Council Promotional Award for the Moline Centre Project Management Team (PMT) and Design Build Management Team (DBMT) Process.
According to the IEDC, this was in recognition of a Multi-Year Economic Development Program Best Practice.
Project Management Team (PMT)
The primary purpose of the PMT is to implement the Moline Centre Plan through the coordination of activities by City staff, Renew Moline, private consultants, and developers in connection with implementation of any project. Members of the PMT advise the City Council on all implementation-related matters.
A key purpose of the PMT is to review and comment on the initial terms of TIF development agreements and project designs as negotiated by a project DBMT in advance of presenting plans to the City Council. In reviewing project terms and designs, the members of the PMT are encouraged to share their insights on how the project will be received by the entire City Council, the private sector and the general public.
The PMT membership consists of the Mayor, four City Council members, and four private-sector members who are community leaders. All members are appointed by the Mayor with consent from the City Council. The Chair of the PMT represents the private-sector. The PMT provides oversight and direction to the DBMT, approving all projects prior to their introduction to the City Council.
The Design/Build Management Team (DBMT)
The purpose of the DBMT is to closely manage a project. Great attention is given to project fit, functionality, design, economics, and scheduling. Project details are confronted and addressed in a private setting at the offices of Renew Moline.
The DBMT uses an integrated and collaborative approach to project design, economic development assistance negotiation, political approval, and regulatory compliance. This process saves time and precious money; it results in projects that function more efficiently and have greater community support.
The DBMT is comprised of key City staff, Renew Moline and its consultants, and the project developer.
Read about the impact Renew Moline has had on the City of Moline and the entire community. From humble beginnings, it is clear why Renew Moline continues to be a driving force in economic development for the entire region.
“The DBMT process made all the difference in the building of the John Deere Commons. It enabled us to achieve a high quality development far beyond our original expectations due to the public-private partnership”.
