CoSign Valley Junction was a collaboration between the ASM and the Historic Valley Junction Foundation, City of West Des Moines, Polk County Board of Supervisors, Main Street Iowa, Bravo Greater Des Moines, the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and the local community.
This nationally recognized Great American Main Street is an historic shopping district of West Des Moines. An incredible mix of old and new, this neighborhood is one for young and old alike, it's walkable, has year-round events and a diverse array of shops for all tastes.
espite a rainstorm worthy of Homer's Odyssey, Valley Junction installed 10 new signs for the district. Through out the process 22 businesses participated and 25 artists submitted 75 sign designs. For any business district looking to participate in CoSign, what made this project so unique was the forward-thinking collaboration between local and state American Main Street programs.
