As previously announced, Lake City is currently participating in the Iowa’s Living Roadways Community Visioning Program. Volunteers are being sought for participation in the Special Places Mapping/Visual Quality Assessment phase. Sessions are scheduled for late afternoon and early evening on Wednesday, April 24. Due to limited space, all participants must be pre-registered. Please contact city hall at 464-3111 to reserve a spot and take advantage of the opportunity to provide input in the visioning process.
Iowa’s Living Roadways Community Visioning program obtains public input from a variety of sources, including five focus groups which were held on Saturday. These groups identified transportation and recreation assets and barriers within the community. The results of the focus groups can be found at http://18.104.22.168/communitymapping/visioning/map/index.php. Select “Lake City” and “Focus Group”.
Further public sessions will be held in the future and residents can offer input through an online survey at http://22.214.171.124/visioningSurvey/survey1.php, or pick up a paper copy at city hall to complete.
Thank you for all who have participated in the process, your input is much appreciated!
