The City of Fort Dodge now has a marketing video it can share with prospective businesses and civic groups to hopefully spurn growth in the downtown area. The 7-minute video, developed by Ankeny-based Snyder and Associates, features interviews with key local players and computer images of what the downtown area could look like with a crosstown connector and new downtown rec center. Self-Supported Municipal Improvement District board member Jim Bird said the marketing video seeks to create conversation rather than answer a large number of questions about the downtown revitalization plan. City Councilman Dave Flattery came away impressed and looks forward to seeing how the video helps in the future. The marketing video will soon be available to see on YouTube, as well as the city's website and Facebook page.
