Mayor's Welcome

Mayor MaddasionWelcome to Clinton, Iowa!

As Mayor of Clinton, it is my pleasure to be the first to welcome you to our great city.  Clinton is a beautiful river town located in eastern Iowa directly along the Mississippi River, which has grown from a prosperous logging town into a prime location for industry and commercial development.  We are currently home too many businesses to include national and local retailers, factories, and restaurants.  Our historic riverfront is home to several amenities that allow our citizens and guests to have an experience like no other.

In 2005, Clinton was labeled as an Iowa Great Place and we continue to hold that designation as we grow and improve our city in all aspects.  Our dynamic community is well positioned for the future while continuing to provide quality living in the present.  We encourage visitors to take advantage of the vast array of attractions we have to offer.  Whether you come by car on the historic Lincoln Highway that passes directly through Clinton or by boat from the Mississippi River there is something for everyone in Clinton!

Our community is unique as we have two historic districts to shop, eat, relax, or get active.  The Lyons District provides fine dining, shopping and river access with an old time feel and a family environment.  It is home to several businesses that are staples in our community along with the Sawmill Museum where there is fun and learning for all ages.  Our downtown district is home to our historic Mississippi riverfront amenities to include parks, dining, shopping, camping, and our beautiful marina.  We recently finished construction on top of the line pickle ball and sand volley ball courts along with a fitness court which is the first of its kind in Iowa.  Clinton is home to one of Iowa’s largest city owned parks. Eagle Point Park is not only a park but a destination with its epic Riverview and a fully renovated lodge that can be used for all types of events.    

Driving through the streets of Clinton you can quickly see why we are a place where people want to live, work, and play!
