On behalf of the City Council and Staff, it's my pleasure to welcome you to the city of Nevada's official website! This site will provide you with a wealth of information.
The City Council establishes a set of strategic priorities every other year. These priorities form the framework for the City Councils initiatives and policy decisions.
I invite you to come to Nevada and experience our community's rich cultural amenities and the natural beauty along our nature trails. Nevada is an excellent place to raise a family and a safe and friendly town. The Nevada Community School District and the Story County Medical Center is exceptional. The Nevada Community Resource Center provides before and after school child care and early learning classes for our children. There are several parks and programs to give children and adults alike many choices.
Nevada is blessed with a hardworking, skilled and educated work force. Our proximity to Ames, Ankeny and Des Moines helps support staff by providing numerous quality private and public institutions of higher learning. Being so close to metropolitan areas also allows for access to additional cultural events and attractions.
Our progressive economic development focus promotes citizen involvement in developing City priorities. Entrepreneurship is welcome and supported. A number of lots are available for businesses to relocate.
Nevada is a great place to call home. It is among the top cities in the Midwest to raise a family, have a meaningful career, start or grow a business, and enjoy life.
Our website is user-friendly and I invite you to use it as another way to interact with our local city government. Thank you for visiting and come back soon.
Lynn Lathrop Mayor
