JOHNSTON, Iowa -- The city of Johnston is finally ready to break ground on a project years in the making. Since 2006, the city has talked about creating a place where residents could gather, a central meeting point of sorts, and finally the plans are complete.
The long-awaited Johnston Town Center project aims to break ground in late September. The 1-acre space on the east side of Merle Hay Road between NW 62nd Avenue and NW 63rd Place is expected to serve as a future gathering place for the community's residents.
