Historic Des Moines Neighborhood Plans To Halt DMU Project
DES MOINES, Iowa -- The solution seems simple on paper for Des Moines University. They currently have 1,597 students, 346 employees, 220 daily patient visits but only 723 parking spaces. "Imagine patients who come to the clinic with difficulty walking, they are diabetic or have other health issues and can't walk well. Often they don't find parking or have to walk a long distance," said Mark Danes, DMU Chief Strategic Communications Officer.
