In 2020, the City of Johnston had a solid growth year, led by $59.8 million in new taxable valuation. This includes 147 new residential units and $14.3 million in new commercial projects. Additionally, the City focused considerable efforts on constructing the Johnston Town Center, including opening the new Johnston City Hall. Staff also led the efforts to adopt a Comprehensive Plan, the Thrive 2040 Plan; both projects are poised to set the City for further growth and prosperity for many years into the future.
“Despite the challenges we all faced with the pandemic, 2020 proved to be a year of steady and sustainable growth,” said Community Development Director David Wilwerding. “Advancing construction of the Johnston Town Center, opening a new City Hall, and adopting an updated Comprehensive Plan are major accomplishments on their own in a normal year. To have accomplished these amid a global pandemic is truly incredible and reflects on our outstanding team of staff and appointed and elected officials!”
