OPN has been working with the community of Dallas Center, Iowa, on a new 12,500-square-foot library. Dallas Center is a rural community located 25 minutes from downtown Des Moines that appeals to those who want a great family-centered, close-knit community with a reasonable commute time. The community is located on the popular 89-mile Raccoon River Valley Bike Trail. OPN was hired to provide schematic designs for two potential sites, one located on the east end of Mound Park, and one directly west of the bike trail in close proximity to downtown.
Note: These are preliminary designs that have been neither approved nor accepted by the City of Dallas Center. The City has not yet selected a site for a potential future library.
