The current Clive population of 16,200 residents is expected to grow 44 percent to its maximum population of 23,000 residents by 2030.
Due to this expected growth, the City Council directed City staff to evaluate citywide space needs. The facility and space needs study identified the current facilities are undersized to meet the escalating population. These limitations applied to police, fire, library, and city administration.

The City of Clive has been working to address facility challenges since 2008, when the city proposed a new library on land just south of the Clive Aquatic Center — the proposal failed during a bond referendum in July 2008.
Since then, the City Council has been discussing next steps to address the city’s increasing facility challenges as the city continues to experience population growth. The focus is on developing city facilities needed to provide city services for the projected maximum population.
The proposed Clive Town Center development, along NW 114th Street, would provide civic facilities for the police department and administration, which would then allow the fire department and library to expand into their current buildings.
