$10.6M capital campaign kicks off for Clive’s Greenbelt Landing project
The City of Clive and the Clive Community Foundation recently kicked off the public phase of the $10.6 million Greenbelt Landing capital campaign. Greenbelt Landing is the 14-acre park east of Northwest 114th Street next to Walnut Creek and the Clive Greenbelt. It includes the Clive Aquatic Center, Community Building and Clive Festival grounds. More than $7 million has already been secured during the campaign’s quiet phase, and the goal is to raise an additional $3 million in this next phase of the campaign. “The response we have received from our initial round of fundraising has been incredible,” Clive Mayor John Edwards said in a statement. “We are excited to open up opportunities to the public to be partners in this project and help us quickly reach our fundraising goal so construction can begin in 2023.” The Greenbelt Landing project is a partnership between the City of Clive and the Clive Community Foundation to enhance the park and adjacent areas in the Clive Greenbelt. Planned improvements include a storm-water wetland with a boardwalk and educational areas, a renovated community building, a new stage and festival grounds, public art, a trailhead and multiple nature-focused features. Donations to the capital campaign can be made through the Clive Greenbelt Reinvestment Fund.
