Big Ideas


We want your ideas and possibilities for development that could significantly impact downtown Moline. Community input, ideas and discussion are vital to making these projects a reality. There are several ways you can take part and the goal is to gather ideas about what projects are important to the community. These concepts will ultimately become suggestions for the City of Moline to consider.


Anyone who lives, works, or spends time in the City of Moline is encouraged to be involved in shaping the Downtown I-74 Corridor. Here’s how:

Where did ideas start to take shape? Renew Moline worked with the Urban Land Institute’s Advisory Services Panel to explore the possibilities of what could be developed in the I-74 Corridor. ULI is the oldest and largest network of cross-disciplinary real estate and land use experts in the world. ULI is its members. Through their members’ dedication to the mission and their shared expertise, the Institute has been able to set standards of excellence in development practice.

The ULI Panel’s assignment was this:
  • How do we maximize development potential in creating new centers of activity?
  • How can we create one downtown environment despite the significant impact of the new bridge?
  • How do we create an environment that is stable and predictable that encourages creativity and innovation in development downtown?
