The Countdown Has Begun!








Join us October 16, 2019!

Register for our annual community bus tour and networking reception, conducted in collaboration with Grimes Chamber and Economic Development. This event provides individuals in the development industry with an opportunity to tour two communities and learn about how to get involved in making development happen. From lenders to architects to city officials, attendees are able to network with others in the industry and, hopefully, make a deal!

This year’s tour features Johnston’s hottest project in the works: Johnston Town Center. The bus tour will kick-off promptly at 3:00 PM from Johnston City Hall, which is also the location of the upcoming Johnston Town Center. Participants will take a tour of all the latest projects and properties in Johnston and Grimes that they can get involved with. The Johnston portion of the tour will also include a showing of JEDCO’s latest drone video. 

Immediately following the tour, attendees can enjoy a cocktail reception at Community State Bank (across the street). The networking reception will feature various displays of Johnston Town Center project details provided by Confluence.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to talk with those closest to the project about how they can get involved early.
