Thriving Communities

Belief in housing for all: "Those people are us."

The City of Manning is committing $1.2 million towards the Stadium View Subdivision neighborhood. While that may not sound like a lot, it’s definitely a lot to a town that only receives $750,000 a year in property taxes. To put this in perspective, if you were to scale that to a mid-sized community project, it’d be like the City of Carroll self-funding a $10 million project.   Or to scale it to a metro, it’d be like the City of Des Moines self-funding a $242 million housing development.  This doesn’t even count the $500,000 that’s being put in by Manning Municipal Utilities and the $400,000 of land donated by the farmer and the school.
