The Iowa’s Living Roadways Community Visioning Program is currently accepting applications for the 2021 program. Eligible communities are those with populations of fewer than 10,000 residents, existing transportation-related issues, and a committee of volunteers willing to dedicate their time and talent to the visioning process. Only communities located within one mile of a state or federal highway will be selected.
As with many Community and Economic Development (CED) programs in Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, the Iowa’s Living Roadways Community Visioning Program was profoundly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent shutdown.
When ISU suspended work-related travel, the program was forced to cancel in-person activities. Read how the program adapted to virtual engagement in 2020 and how that is affecting the 2021 program.
