PSA: The Indianola Skate Park remains closed until further notice. While there have been many who have taken advantage of the skate park’s new graffiti policy correctly, we are greatly disappointed that a few juveniles would deliberately violate aspects of it, resulting in vandalism of a memorial as well as other park amenities. Police have spoken with a juvenile who admitted to some of the acts of vandalism and destruction of property. Unfortunately, graffiti has been an ongoing issue that has required much staff time for removal, even before the new policy was announced.

In the meantime, the City is collaborating with community partners (i.e. the school district, the School Resource Officer, High School Art Club, Mayor’s Youth Council and others) on additional ways to educate park users and encourage them to respect the rules that are in place. Thank you to all the community organizations and groups that have volunteered to assist in our efforts!

Traffic Alert:

Phase 1 of the Indianola Downtown Square Reconstruction Project is scheduled to begin at 5 AM on Monday, June 14, 2021 with all roads included in Phase 1 being closed to traffic. Phase 1 includes West Salem Avenue, between B Street and Howard Street, as well as North Buxton Street, between West Salem Avenue and West Ashland Avenue. A temporary construction fence will be erected between the sidewalk and streets, allowing for pedestrian traffic on the sidewalks and access to businesses to continue. Once all construction within the roadways is completed, construction will shift to the sidewalk area; the roadway will remain closed, and pedestrian access will shift into the new road area. Access to all buildings will be maintained throughout the duration of the project. It is anticipated that all of Phase 1 construction will be completed by mid-November 2021.

City staff will begin work for this two-way conversion from 1:00 AM on Monday, May 17th by uncovering new signs, removing over 160 signs that are no longer needed, rotating existing signs, and adding new pavement marking to assist with this change.

We are requesting motorist to be alert and to use extreme caution when driving these routes where work is being performed for this two-way conversion.

Additionally, temporary on-street parking restrictions will be placed the afternoon of Sunday, May 16th and the morning of Monday, May 17th, along the west side of Howard Street and along the east side of Buxton Street to avoid conflicting traffic movements from this two-way conversion.
