Maplenol Barn

Valley Church has asked the City of West Des Moines’ Plan and Zoning Commission to approve its plan to re-grade the barn field. This will accommodate a new 187,000 sq. ft. church and put a detention basin very near the barn. Two neighboring residents are currently requesting the City to deny approval. The Commission found the proposed grading to be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan. The main impact this development has is that it lays the groundwork to keep the Maplenol Barn from being visible to people on the street.
