The Downtown Association of Iowa City is asking for the Iowa City Chamber of Commerce to support a municipal improvement district as a means to improve downtown.

On Wednesday, Chamber members listened to the proposal by the on how the money would be used.
Funds from the district would support a downtown manager whose role would be to develop, expand, and beautify downtown.

The Local Government Affairs Committee voted unanimously to recommend support for the proposal to the board.

Kelly McCann, director of communications, said members of the Chamber are “better informed” after Wednesday’s meeting.

The next step will likely be deliberation by the board of directors, McCann said.

A decision is expected to be made by March 24.
