History

The North Liberty area was first settled in 1838 by John Gaylor and Alonzo C. Dennison. It was originally known as “Big Bottom” or “North Bend” (in reference to its location near the bend of the Iowa River) by its earliest settlers and was later known as “Squash Bend” before the city was platted as North Liberty in 1857.

North Liberty incorporated on November 10, 1913, when its population was approximately 190. Population growth accelerated in the 1960s, and the Iowa City Community School District opened Penn Elementary there in 1961. A 1967 special census placed the city’s population at 782. The population grew to over 2,000 by 1980, and in response in 1984 the North Liberty Community Library was founded and Penn Meadows Park, the city’s largest, was opened. By 2000, the population of the city was over 5,000 and the city had established its own police and fire departments, and built a community center with library and aquatic park, as well as a city administration building. The city has since continued to grow, with a population of 7,224 in a 2004 special census. In 2007, the population was estimated to be 10,982, making North Liberty the second fastest-growing city in Iowa. According to the 2010 U.S. census the population of North Liberty had increased to 13,374.

Education

A majority of North Liberty residents live within the boundaries of the Iowa City Community School District, while the area west of Jones Boulevard (and the Deerfield Subdivision) belongs to the Clear Creek Amana Community School District.

Heritage Christian School is a nondenominational Christian school in North Liberty, Iowa, for students that are in pre-kindergarten to eighth grade. It was founded in 1992.

A 2017 poll by LendEDU gave North Liberty an Education Grade of 84.51, placing it 9th among its Top 500 Most Educated Cities. North Liberty is the only non-coastal city listed in the top 10. According to the study, the number of advanced-degree holding residents has a strong correlation with several social goods, including “a good number of high paying jobs in the area, an excellent schooling system to educate the next generation, nearby higher education institutions, and more.”

Infrastructure

The sewage from the city is treated at a modern and sophisticated treatment plant using Membrane Bio-Reactor(MBR) technology followed by UV sterilization. It is designed to be able to discharge more than 2 million gallons of high quality effluent to Muddy Creek each day.
