The progress and vision of Manning has been recognized yet again and they have been selected as one of 10 Iowa communities to participate in the Iowa’s Living Roadways Community Visioning Program for 2016. The program, sponsored by the Iowa Department of Transportation in partnership with Iowa State University Landscape Architecture Extension and Trees for Iowa integrates technical landscape planning and design techniques with sustainable community action. They will be offering expertise in creating conceptual design plans and will assist community leaders and volunteers in making sound and meaningful decisions about the local landscape. To qualify for the program, the community’s population must be less than 10,000, be facing existing transportation-related issues and have a committee of volunteers ready to dedicate their time and talent to the visioning process. In addition to Manning, other 2016 Visioning communities selected at this time include Carlisle, Colfax, Garrison, Hampton, Kalona, Monona and Stuart.
