CED seeks communities for two-year partnerships

Tim Borich

Through Communities to Community (C2C), ISU Extension and Outreach Community and Economic Development will enter into partnerships with up to five Iowa communities in different areas of the state. The C2C program will offer a two-year schedule of bundled design, educational, business and leadership development services available through CED and the ISU College of Design, said CED Director Tim Borich. 

The services will be customized to promote the positive changes and outcomes that client communities desire. Examples of outcomes include stabilizing downtown environments; improving citizen participation and local leadership; encouraging diversity; capitalizing on small business, retail trade and tourism opportunities; meeting housing needs; or achieving quality-of-life goals.
