Elkader, IA (July 23) – Residents will have the opportunity to share their ideas for improving Elkader at a design workshop hosted by the Elkader visioning committee at Keystone Park on Friday, July 31st. This workshop is the culmination of an input-gathering process to identify transportation needs and opportunities for enhancements in Elkader. Information collected at public input gathering events and community survey conducted earlier this spring will be incorporated into a conceptual transportation and landscape enhancement plan.

Landscape Architects with Jeffrey L. Bruce & Company will be working at Keystone Park (corner of Main & Bridge Street) throughout the workshop to develop a conceptual plan that meets the goals and needs of Elkader. The public is invited to stop in between noon and 5:30pm to provide input on the designs. Results from focus-group workshops and the random-sample transportation survey will also be available.

The workshop will conclude with a review of the preliminary designs created during the workshop. The end of day review is from 5pm to 5:30pm at Keystone Park, (corner of Main and Bridge Street) in Elkader and is open to the public.

To learn more about participating in the design workshop, 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.
