Renew Moline’s work emphasizes “making Moline a better place to live, work, play, do business and learn” by coordinating closely with the City of Moline to implement its Comprehensive Plan, especially as it relates to the downtown riverfront area. The Plan forms a visionary, yet achievable basis for planning programs and development guidelines. It also suggests additional areas of study and planning that are essential in moving projects forward to successful completion.
