I support the proposal to change the Sign Ordinance to allow additional flexibility, fairness between commercial properties, regulations reflecting current times, and providing more uniformity with the surrounding communities. I believe this can be done in a way that preserves the aesthetics of the city of Clive while accommodating the needs of business and other commercial properties. Thanks

We are a business in Clive and have been shut down numerous times in our attempt to improve recognition through signage to our business. there are other locations in the area that have had signage allowed that we have not and hope the city will review and come with a good plan to help display our business!! We support a change in our sign ordinance.

Kind of hard to read that red-line document...my only concern is allowing video signs. They are a huge distraction -- even for great drivers. It draws your attention away from the road and definitely creates more dangerous conditions on the street. Please do not allow video signs -- we have enough distracted drivers with texting, car computer systems, etc.

I'm in favor of minimal signage in general.
For me, it's an inverse proportion ~ the less signage, the higher the quality of life.
Thanks for asking!

I'm in favor of focus on the health of the Greenbelt and flood control. In my view, this is the most precious asset in Clive.
Thanks for asking! Along those lines, a pet peeve of mine is the loud music that's allowed to be played by bikers and walkers on the trail. Would love it if they could listen to music if they wish, but not the rest of us, to maintain the peace and quiet of the trails.

Continue to build out trails -- this is a great attraction to potential home buyers and also businesses. It is the reason I moved to Clive -- access to trails for biking. I know we have other issues with roads/flooding/etc., but those items should be handled with bonds/grants. People love the trails - for walking, running, taking kids on bike rides.

We think very high priority must be placed on storm water issues to correct the possibility of flooding in the areas of Clive that have been told this past year they are now in a flood plain, when this was never a concern, and they were not in a flood plain when their home was built with the city's approval.

I would encourage a 90% investment in our cities infrastructure and roads and no more than 10% for nice to have items. The future will provide us plenty of time to do the nice to have items when we become landlocked, in about 2025!

Clive's parks are wonderful with drinking fountains at all I have visited. Some of the smaller parks do not have bathroom facilities which makes it difficult to plan an extended period of time with children (i.e. picnic, playtime, and hiking)

I prefer Major street repair. All the money spent to patch Clark St. Between 103rd and 109th did not improve the smoothness of the street. I would like to see it totally removed and replaced. If that's not possible, then blacktop it all like you did to part of 103rd.
