Annexation of 1,461-acres

The City Development Board approved a 1,461-acre annexation into the City of Johnston on September 12. Properties are 100 percent voluntary and include the Beaver Creek Golf Course, a Department of the Navy Training Facility currently under construction, a portion of Camp Dodge, and six large undeveloped parcels. Properties with development potential are centered around the east side of Highway 141 and Saylorville Drive near the mile-long bridge.

Continued growth in Johnston and limited land availability have drawn interest from developers to the annexation area for a number of years and the Saylorville Drive area has long been included in the Johnston’s Comprehensive Plan as a future growth node. 
Recent land acquisitions by Camp Dodge south of Saylorville Drive and continued rural residential development to the north have already started to change the landscape.
