The City of Bettendorf is a great place to do business, to grow your family, and to visit.  Bettendorf is a vibrant community on the banks of the Mississippi River, where the downtown is seeing a revitalization, and our city's northern neighborhoods border Interstate 80, one of the nation's most robust interstate systems.  We pride ourselves on a growing population, some of the best schools in the State of Iowa, and a parks and trail system that are second to none!  The quality of life in Bettendorf shines through our strong housing mix, our small business climate, and our rich cultural and recreational amenities.

Bettendorf's workforce has some of the lowest commute times you will find.  Our streets and infrastructure are well maintained, and in the winter months, our award winning Public Works team keeps our streets clean and safe.  Not to mention the recently opened Interstate 74 Bridge!  This $1.4 Billion state of the art bridge system moves people, commerce and visitors alike.  It is highlighted by a one of a kind pedestrian bridge that allows visitors to walk or bike from Bettendorf's riverfront to Moline, Illinois on a safe and visitor-friendly trail.  Living, working or playing in Bettendorf could never be easier or safer!

We are proud to be a business-friendly community that embraces our relationships with businesses of all sizes.  Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about doing business in Bettendorf.
