Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance A letter from the CEO The Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance and the Messenger are pleased to present this publication as a reference and guide to use for the Fort Dodge area. The Greater Fort Dodge area is experiencing booming economic growth as well as significant improvements to the quality of life for all of our citizens. This growth is unprecedented in recent history and is a result of increased engagement and collaboration of our citizens and our institutions. Economic and community development go hand in hand and the Fort Dodge community recognizes that an economically viable community is one that is a great place to live, work, and play. This unprecedented economic growth has made the Fort Dodge region a leader in Iowa and the Midwest. In a 24 month period between 2011 and 2012, Webster County experienced nearly 10% of all capital investment made by primary sector companies statewide. As a result, of this primary sector activity, retail sales have grown in Fort Dodge by over 40% since 2010. This growth has been concurrent with quality of life improvements that include many new retail facilities, new recreational opportunities, such as added trails, both land and water, and a newly opened OHV (Off-Highway Vehicle) Park, as well as many new youth opportunities. Fine Arts, quality health care, leading educational opportunities and a location on the Des Moines River Brushy Creek recreation area, make this a great place to visit or call home. THANK YOU, to all 495 Growth Alliance investors and members, and all the residents that have made this such a great place to live, work, and play. Dennis Plautz, CEO Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance www.greater fortdodge.com

History

Frontier, Expansion, Potential The roots of Fort Dodge date back to 1850 when soldiers arrived at the confluence of the Des Moines River and Lizard Creek. • Fort Dodge was originally named Fort Clarke. • The military fort was only active until 1853 when troops moved to quell Indian uprisings. • Major William Williams, the military fort post storekeeper, purchased the land and buildings and platted the town of Fort Dodge in 1854. The town of Fort Dodge was officially founded in 1869. • John F. Duncombe married William Williams’ daughter and was the first attorney in Fort Dodge. He was also the Iowa Counsel for the Illinois Central Railroad. • The arrival of four railroads and the discovery of gypsum assured the growth of Fort Dodge. • In 1872, The Fort Dodge Plaster Mills were constructed and were the first gypsum mills west of the Mississippi River, at the head of what is now Gypsum Creek. • In 2010, Fort Dodge received the designation of an “Iowa Great Place.”

The oldest family-owned business is Laufersweiler’s Funeral Home, which was started as a furniture store in 1858. Becker’s Florist is the second oldest familyowned business, started in 1885.

Agriculture Corn, Soybeans, Grains, Livestock Fort Dodge and Webster County sit in a region with some of the richest soil in Iowa. • Annually, Webster County’s farming community sells more than $353 million in agricultural products, $291 million of that is in crop production which is the fourth-highest county in Iowa. (www.agcensus.usda.gov, 2012) • Average farm size is 422 acres with an average market value of products sold per farm of $365,319. (www.agcensus.usda.gov, 2012) • Webster County’s corn for grain crop ranks 5th in the state and 28th in the nation. (www.agcensus.usda.gov, 2012) • Adding value to our commodities that are traditionally exported out of the region is the goal. Producing high-value products/ingredients for plastics, fibers, resins, pharmaceuticals, etc. creates higher returns on the commodities produced in the region.

Iowa ranks first in corn, hog, soybean and egg production nationally.
