City of Norwalk Economic Development

The City of Norwalk offers a distinct identity— a family-friendly and economically strong community with a business friendly atmosphere conveniently located in the southern part of the metro. Norwalk shares borders with neighboring cities of Des Moines, West Des Moines and Cumming and serves as the closest suburban community to the Des Moines International Airport.


Norwalk features a newer housing stock, world class schools (in a smaller school district) and some of the best golf around. Voted Businessweek’s Best Affordable Suburb in Iowa in 2010, Norwalk reaps the benefit of being one of the preeminent suburban communities in the Des Moines Metro. Our median income is over $20,000 more per household than the rest of Iowa and higher than the Des Moines Metro.City of Norwalk Economic Development
