This week, the Des Moines city council is moving ahead with plans for a new downtown dog park.

The city is holding a public hearing on the park that will be built just across the river from the botanical center.  The council will also approve a nearly 152,000 dollar contract to move forward with construction.

Leaders are also discussing the sale of a downtown alley way near the corner of 8th and High street.  If approved, the Cathedral Church of St. Paul would use the space for a new pedestrian plaza in the area between the church and orchard place. 

Also on the agenda is a 17-million dollar plan to revitalize Ingersoll Avenue. 

The council scheduled a hearing on July 9th to adopt the plan that would fix sewers, and widen sidewalks.
