Country Club Road

The City of Iowa Falls is negotiating a new lease for the land on which Country Club Road sits. Most of the road is built on property owned by Union Pacific Railroad.

The City of Iowa Falls will pay $2,000 per year for the next three years to maintain public access to a road that sits on railroad property. 

The issue went before the city council last month, when City Attorney Taylor Nederhoff presented a lease that had been proposed by Union Pacific Railroad. Country Club Road, a public city street that runs from Oak Street, east along the south edge of Highland Golf Club, ending at Iowa Prestressed Concrete Inc., lies almost entirely on land owned by the railroad company.
