EMC Insurance Donation May Create New Place to View Des Moines Skyline

DES MOINES, Iowa  --  There may soon be a new spot to take in the beauty of the Des Moines skyline.

On Monday night, the city council will vote to approve a $250,000 donation from EMC Insurance to create an overlook at MacRae Park off Southwest 9th Street.

The EMC Overlook will provide a picture-perfect view of downtown.

Construction on the project could begin as soon as next spring.
