Polk City, Iowa


A Message From Mayor Jason Morse

When I was a kid growing up, I remember my parents saying, “Someday the secret’s going to be out about Polk City.” 

We’ve always had our great people, Big Creek and Saylorville lakes right in our backyard, and our historic town square. We’ve always had a small-town feel, but close enough to the metro to have big-town conveniences. Today we still have those same great qualities that have kept me in Polk City and made me want to raise my family here. 

But there’s no question the secret is out, and new people and businesses are coming to Polk City. You can’t drive through town the last couple years without seeing construction somewhere. Our little community is growing — from 2,344 people in 2000 to about 5,000 in 2016. 

It’s also exciting to see the business growth in Polk City. Businesses are drawn here for the lower commercial real estate costs, easy access to resources from the larger metro area, strong support from the community and compelling success stories from other local businesses. 

Polk City offers value to the metro as a whole. We’re not trying to compete, but Polk City fills its own special niche in the Des Moines area. When you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Des Moines, we invite you to take a drive to our lakes for the afternoon and then stop for a meal or ice cream in Polk City. 

Come visit us, and I know you’ll agree — Polk City is a great place to live, play and work.
