Short commutes, averaging 15 to 20 minutes, add to the Corridor’s quality living. Because our citizens can pick their pace, they have more time to enjoy their neighborhoods and community.
What does community mean in Iowa’s Corridor?
Iowa’s Creative Corridor connects, celebrates and supports all those who dream big, push boundaries and create here. We support one region, creating, living, building together and being a globally known magnet for creative people, families and commerce.
Welcoming International Residents
In 2014, the City of Iowa City was named an International Welcoming City (part of Welcoming America).
This nationwide program supports locally driven efforts to create more welcoming, globally friendly environments that maximize opportunities for economic growth and cultural vitality and position communities as globally competitive, 21st century leaders.
Iowa City’s cultural diversity enriches our community and following the designation, an International Welcoming Consortium was formed to coordinate welcoming efforts throughout the entire Iowa City area. Partners include the University of Iowa, the Downtown District, ICAD Group, the Iowa City/Coralville/North Liberty Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Iowa City Area Chamber of Commerce, Pearson, the City of Iowa City and members of our international community.
