Connect with Renew Moline


Renew Moline, Inc. is an award-winning, non-profit economic development organization devoted to working with the City of Moline on riverfront and other development. A community of approximately 44,000 and the home to the worldwide headquarters of Deere & Company, Moline, Illinois, is nestled near the center of the bi-state region known as the Quad Cities. This metropolitan region of nearly 400,000 residents lies three hours to the west of Chicago at the crossroads of Interstate 80 and the Mississippi River.

Renew Moline is the link between non-profits, elected officials and staff, regional and state economic development partners, local businesses, and development-oriented entities interested in investment in Moline. Through those relationships, development planning and visioning comes to fruition. Renew Moline provides professional services with a primary focus on coordinating private land development investments and working to secure public improvements to enhance those developments. In partnership with the City of Moline, implementation of the city’s comprehensive plan, especially as it relates to the riverfront, is Renew Moline’s priority.
