Welcome to Waukee, and thanks for visiting the City website! It is full of all the information you need to navigate our great community, and if you are unable find something, please email the Webmaster.
We’re so glad to have you here — and we have to say, you’ve made a great choice. Waukee has fantastic schools, 23 miles of trails, ever-expanding parks and amenities, well-maintained roads and an abundance of friendly people. Safety is a top priority in Waukee, with a big focus on providing safe neighborhoods. Our dedicated police and fire personnel are top-notch, keeping response times low and professionalism high.
This is truly an exciting time to be part of our community. The addition of Grand Prairie Parkway and the widening of Alice’s Road have opened opportunity in the 1,300-acre, multi-use Kettlestone Development. Waukee is perfectly poised for business development and growth. In fact, it’s already one of the most rapidly growing communities in the Des Moines Metro.
But we’re also determined to maintain the hometown feel that is one of the hallmarks of Waukee. Trails and walkability are important to us, and every season brings community events such as FamilyFest, the Waukee Arts Festival, the Independence Day Celebration, our annual WinterFest event and more! We also offer excellent Parks & Recreation options and Waukee Public Library services and events for every resident to enjoy.
On behalf of the Waukee City Council and staff, we hope you’ll enjoy “The Key to Good Living” as much as we do.
Mayor Courtney Clarke
