And as the city looks to future growth, many major projects are in the works:
-Connecting 85th Street to Interstate-29
-The 41st interchange renovation
-Improvements to Arrowhead Parkway
-A new $159 million water treatment facility

At Tuesday's meeting TenHaken said, "We continue to expect steady growth over the long-term."
