Public Hearing

The public hearing regarding the rezoning of the Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) center, 315 S.W. 14th St., from a C-3B Central Business District Mixed Use District to a Planned Unit Development (PUD) was postponed until the next Des Moines City Council meeting, Sept. 24 at 4:30 p.m. at the City Hall. It was proposed for rezoning because Capstone Ventures LLC does not currently hold the permits required to convert ICE into a facility that would be able to detain individuals for on-site processing. However, the Planning and Zoning Commission of Des Moines recently denied Capstone Ventures LLC's request to rezone the property on the grounds that the rezoning is "not in conformance with the existing Des Moines' 2020 Community Character Plan's future land use designation of Downtown Support Commercial." The public hearing was originally set for Sept. 12, but the council voted to table the matter until this Monday. CV
