City Facility Needs

Public Works FacilitySince 2008 the City of Clive has been attempting to address facility challenges it has with various City facilities.  In 2008 the City proposed a new library on land just south of the Clive Aquatic Center.  This proposal failed during a bond referendum in August 2008.  Since then the City Council has been discussing next steps on addressing the City's increasing facility challenges as the City continues to experience population growth.

Currently Clive has approximately 16,000 residents.  Over the next 10-15 years the population is expected to grow by 44% and max out in the range of 23,000 residents.  The City of Clive is focused on developing the City facilities needed to provide the City services needed for the City's projected build-out population of 23,000.
