Come and Discover What’s Great in Spirit Lake

Centrally located on US Hwy 71 and Iowa Hwy 9, Spirit Lake, Iowa is 20 minutes south of Interstate 90, making it a day’s drive or less from such major Midwest hubs as Chicago, Denver, Kansas City and Minneapolis. It is also in the center of what is known as Iowa’s Great Lakes Region, which encompasses seven beautiful natural lakes. Spirit Lake’s local economy thrives on its rich mix of recreational, industrial and commercial businesses, making it a great place to live, work and raise a family.

The City of Spirit Lake works closely with the Iowa Lakes Corridor Development Corp. and the Spirit Lake Chamber of Commerce. We actively promote the area to prospective businesses and also strive to serve existing businesses. If you have questions regarding commercial or industrial development, we can provide answers. There are state and local programs and incentives that may be available for new, relocating or expanding businesses. Reflecting our commitment to supporting business activity, the City Council has established an Industrial Committee to advise the Council on development policies and issues. The Spirit Lake Development Corporation has recently been created to provide assistance in development projects in Spirit Lake and the surrounding area.

Spirit Lake has various regulations regarding architectural standards and signage to continue improving the appearance of the City and its commercial districts. It is advisable to check with City Hall on property regulations before any work is started.
