Over the past 10 years, the City of Waukee has experienced transformative growth. Waukee continues its progress towards a carefully planned evolution as the fastest-growing city in the state of Iowa. City leaders believe the speed of development increases with good information, street and utility infrastructure, and a quick development-approval process. As a result, Waukee pledges to work with developers to minimize the risks of development while bringing business and residential investments that increase the quality of life.
Waukee is a family-oriented city with award-winning schools and safe neighborhoods. Boasting more than 17,000 residents, Waukee is a growing and dynamic community. Securing the state's first Diverging Diamond Interchange in 2015, the City of Waukee and it's premier development, Kettlestone, are directly accessible by Interstate 80. Waukee is poised to continue its impressive growth.
