PlanDSM: Creating Our Tomorrow
Thursday, May 14 at 6:00 – 8:00 pm

The City of Des Moines wants to ensure that the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and allied individuals are a part of this important conversation about the future of our city and its priorities. Please join us at this public input meeting to learn about this important project and tell us your vision for the future of Des Moines.
