Southwest Iowa Nonprofit for Collective Impact (SINC) is conducting the fundraising and management for River's Edge Phase Four in partnership with the City of Council Bluffs.
Tax increases are not part of the River's Edge funding plan. Phase Four is funded entirely by private donations which have been raised by SINC. The estimated budget is $50 million, and all of the funds have been committed by private donors and area foundations. The Iowa West Foundation provided the lead gift of $15 million.
Phase Four will improve the area north of Tom Hanafan Park. Plans include:
- Belles' Play Garden (2022)
- A Treetop Walk
- MidAmerican Adventure Adventure Tower
- A Pier (2024)
