Since 2010, the Campustown Action Association has worked to make Campustown a destination district for the entire Ames community. Our organization seeks to create a vibrant Campustown District that blends new development with old traditions and where everyone is welcome. We recognize the role Campustown plays as the primary commercial district serving Iowa State University and we are committed to meeting the needs of those who spend time here.
The Campustown Action Association strives for visionary leadership, a broad base of volunteers and a reputation for integrity and accountability. We are advocates for the neighborhood and work to support and promote our existing businesses, as well as maintain and develop partnerships to improve quality of life throughout our community. We want you to love Campustown as much as we do!
