Community Design Information

The Partnering Landscape and Community Enhancement (PLaCE) program brings together Iowa communities and faculty and students from the ISU College of Design to work on projects such as concept plans for city parks, historic district planning, and GIS-based modeling and planning. 

The Community Visioning Program provides a planning process to help communities with visionary strategic thinking about landscape improvements.

The Community Development Data, Information and Analysis Laboratory (CD-Dial) gives communities tools to collect and use information for the benefit of the local quality of life.
