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.

As part of the Des Moines Metro, Norwalk benefits when the entire metro grows. We share the targeted industries, knowing when the metro succeeds, so does Norwalk. In addition to the metros key industries, Financial Services, Logistics, Bioscience and Data Centers, Norwalk is primed for retail development. With one of the lowest retails sales per capita in the entire state, Norwalk residents typically shop in neighboring communities, making Norwalk primed for retail development.
