The Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs is awarding Sioux City a grant for $400,000 for the Iowa Great Places Grant.

The grant was given to support the Downtown Riverfront Vision Plan and will be utilized to support the construction of the Chris Larsen Park Riverfront Development Project.

The Chris Larsen Park Development Project has been designed to enhance the riverfront that previously hosted a riverboat casino. The project began in June of 2020 and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2022. The project goal is to provide the community with a natural recreational attraction and destination that offers open spaces and facilities for communities and family gatherings.

The Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs awarded 9 Iowa communities a share of $1.2 million in placemaking grants designated to build projects and strengthen communities. The Iowa Great Places Program and Strengthening Communities Program are made possible by the Iowa Legislature's Rebuild Iowa Infrastructure Fund.

The Chris Larsen Park Development Project has an estimated cost of $12 million with $1.1 million secured through state and local grant funding so far. To learn more about the Riverfront Development Project visit riverfrontsiouxcity.com
