LETTER: ‘What’s Up with Marina District Banners on Streetlamp Poles on 216th?’


Question – What’s up with the “Marina District” banners on the streetlamp poles going east on 216th? They’re very nice looking but I would question the location. The Marina District is down here by the water. You know, at the marina and where the boats are kept.

According to the City of Des Moines Comprehensive Plan, the Marina District eastern border is just east of Marine View Drive including the northern corner at about the new lighted barrier wall on 216th.

Those of us living in the Marina District may be aware that there are empty banner hangers on the light poles on 7th Ave. It seems that this would be a more appropriate location. Or maybe Marine View Drive is the best location, on the west side of the street.
