Bâton Global Selected to Lead Downtown DSM: Future Forward

September 2, 2021
Bâton Global to support the development of Downtown DSM: Future Forward, a vision and action plan for Downtown Des Moines (DSM). The project aims to position DSM for short-term economic recovery and long-term economic vitality and vibrancy, only strengthening a key pillar of #DSMUSA.

Last month, The Steering Committee of Downtown DSM: Future Forward selected Bâton Global along with Civitas Consultants and RDG Planning & Design to lead efforts to set up Downtown DSM for future success. Bâton will work closely with the selected partners to engage with the public to garner feedback and ideas for the future of Downtown DSM.

“We are excited to work with Bâton Global, Civitas and RDG Planning & Design on this collaborative process to shape the future of Downtown DSM,” said Jake Christensen, President of Christensen Development. “A strong region needs a strong Downtown, and this process will encourage Downtown DSM residents, workers, visitors and stakeholders to get in the arena in answering how we can collectively ensure Downtown’s strength over the next several years.”

“At Bâton Global we are driven to create transformative change among our clients and communities. Des Moines is our home, so we are very excited to support the Downtown DSM: Future Forward plan making DSM an even more vibrant and attractive community,” said Matthew Mitchell, Partner at Bâton Global. “We are fortunate to partner with two great organizations in Civitas Consultants and RDG Planning & Design to engage Downtown DSM and develop this plan.”
