Elkader Visioning

By: News Release
Nov 18th, 2019

Elkader has been chosen to participate in this year’s Iowa’s Living Roadways Community Visioning Program. Iowa State University is conducting a survey to learn residents’ opinions on how to improve the Elkader’s landscape through transportation enhancements. The goal of the project is to develop a landscape plan that will graphically illustrate the vision of the community. Input from residents is an important part of this process and ideas about community design and enhancement are valuable to Elkader visioning committee.


Survey packets will be mailed to randomly selected residents in Elkader in November.  If you receive a packet, kindly take a moment to complete the questionnaire and mail it back using the enclosed postage-paid envelope. The questionnaire will take approximately 25 minutes to complete.


In addition to the survey, the Elkader visioning committee will be meeting regularly to discuss transportation enhancement plans for Elkader. The committee will also host a design workshop in summer 2020. These meetings are open to all residents. 

To learn more about participating in the visioning process, please call Jennifer Cowsert at 563-245-2098 or Patty Reisinger, Trees Forever field coordinator, at 319-350-4185.

The Iowa’s 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.
