HOW RENEW STARTED?
The creation of Renew Moline was sparked by Steve Hyman, then a member of the City of Moline Planning Department. Steve felt that the City was not equipped to undertake some of the redevelopment needs and opportunities that would surface as construction of the Civic Center (the MARK of the Quad Cities) and Heritage Place began.
Hyman approached several business people in early 1989 with the suggestion that the creation of a public/private partnership similar to Rejuvenate Davenport would be beneficial to Moline. Specifically, some properties surrounding the proposed Civic Center site were unattractive, dilapidated, and worn out. Others were marginally productive, or not suited to the desired support of the Civic Center.
Renew Moline is a private, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to economic development and redevelopment actvities within the City of Moline.

Renew Moline Recieves Economic Development Award [September 2006]
Renew Moline, Inc. is an award-winning, non-profit economic development organization devoted to the development of the City of Moline.
Moline is part of the greater Quad City Region located west of Chicago at the crossroads of Interstate 80 and the Mississippi River. The City is also home to the worldwide headquarters of John Deere.
This organization was established in 1989 as Moline was rebounding from an agricultural depression that severely impacted the Quad Cities costing more than 23,000 jobs. The riverfront and downtown business district was devastated by the loss of merchants, residents, and pedestrian traffic. This resulted in underutilized land and deteriorating buildings further causing a decline in property values.
A group of dedicated business and civic leaders formed coalition to "renew" Moline. The task of this public/private partnership was to create jobs, expand Moline's tax base, and return the vibrancy to Moline's downtown.
The outcome of this effort was the creation of Renew Moline, Inc. This group of dedicated businesses and individuals is committed to working in partnership with the City of Moline to implement the "Moline Centre Plan."
The successful implementation of the Moline Centre Plan will ensure that the entire community will grow and thrive in concert with the downtown and Mississippi Riverfront, now known as Moline Centre.
Since 1989, this partnership has facilitated over $400 million of public and private investments that significantly eliminated blight and substantially revitalized Moline Centre, fast becoming a national model as a place to live, work, and play.
