Manning Hosting Visioning Focus Group Workshop Saturday

Manning has been selected for the second time to participate in Iowa’s Living Roadways Community Visioning Program, which helps communities under 10,000 bring their volunteers together to envision improvements along transportation venues that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but environmentally sustainable. Community members are invited to take part in the planning process by joining a focus group workshop on Saturday, April 16, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Manning Public Library. Participants will share ideas in small group settings and photograph transportation opportunities and needs in Manning. The information gathered will be used by the visioning committee to develop a transportation concept plan. The Iowa Living Roadways Community Visioning Program is sponsored by the Iowa Department of Transportation in partnership with Iowa State University Extension Landscape Architecture and Trees Forever. For more information on participating in Manning’s focus group or the overall visioning process, contact Geri Spies at 712-655-3557 or Brad Riphagen, the Trees Forever Field Coordinator, at 515-370-1291.
