$160 Million Police Station Proposed on Former Dico Inc. Site
DES MOINES, Iowa -- The City of Des Moines' economic development office says it has a plan to turn one of the city's oldest eyesores into something new. The Dico Incorporated Superfund site near Martin Luther King Parkway and Fleur Drive has sat empty for years. On Monday, consultants recommended the city build a new police department headquarters there. City staffers say the location is prime real estate with other developments and proposals in the works nearby.
