About Park View, Iowa
Park View is country living at its best, with all the advantages of living in the city. Because we are an unincorporated area, homeowners here pay Scott County taxes. We enjoy services such as underground public utilities, sewers, snow removal by Scott County and the water is provided by a separate entity known as; Park View Water Company.
Because Park View is a Community Area Development (also known as a CAD), every street and every lot was carefully laid out and approved by the County Zoning Commission. Park View, CAD contains various types of housing and commercial structures as well as churches and parkways. The CAD is an area surrounding the Park View Owners’ Association, (PVOA), property which includes all “living units” and/or property owned by the PVOA, such as parkway, parks, storage buildings, tornado siren and five ball fields.
The original CAD area included undeveloped ground located to the North of 270th Street and adjacent to Scott County Park. However, this property is separated from all “living units” located south of 270th Street and known as; Park View Owners’ Association. Park View is located within the zip code area serviced by the Eldridge post office.
The plan blends both single and multifamily housing with green areas and makes maximum use of zoning density limitations. There are 75 plus acres of parkway which contain sidewalk, a sand lot volleyball court, and many recreational areas. These parkways are constantly being maintained and improved. We strive to maintain the numerous trees and bountiful landscaping. You can find almost anything you need right in Park View: churches, a convenience store with gas pumps, a dentist, beauty salons, chiropractors, ATM, preschools, restaurants, and insurance agents. Park View residents have chosen to be a “Drug Free” community, which means more severe penalties are assigned to anyone selling drugs within our boundaries.
The Scott County Sheriff’s Office maintains a satellite office in Park View. The Long Grove Volunteer Fire Department provides fire protection, with many Park View residents serving as volunteers. Both can be contacted through the 911 emergency phone systems.
Our community takes pride in being “family oriented,” and has much to offer for all ages. At the center of the community is Neil Armstrong Elementary School, which is an award winning “FINE” (First in National Education) school. The great majority of students in kindergarten through sixth grade walk to school, many of them along the sidewalk located in several parkways. These sidewalks are designed for quicker access to the playground and safer walking to the school.
The North Scott School District is one of the top school districts in Iowa. Neil Armstrong is particularly proud of their fine teachers and strong programs in music, art, and athletics. The PTA is very active at Neil Armstrong, with many Park View residents volunteering their time to help at the school. There are a variety of clubs in which to participate. Some of these are Lions’ Club, Women’s Club, and scouting programs. Park View prides itself in offering many outstanding sports opportunities for children, which are organized by the Park Board. There are numerous T-ball, softball, baseball, basketball and soccer teams, which are coached by community volunteers.
Junior high and high school students may ride a bus to schools located in Eldridge, approximately four miles away. The North Scott School district has impressive programs, both academically and athletically as well as outstanding opportunities in band, voice and theater. There are organizations to suit everyone. In order to provide access to these programs to every student, activity busses are provided in the late afternoon, at no charge.
