Community Visioning display of design plans


Recreational trails are a drawing card for cities trying to attract a young and vibrant workforce. The Humboldt Community Visioning Committee has been working the past nine months to develop enhancements that would improve connections for pedestrians, joggers and bicyclists. Find out more on Sept. 7 from 3-5 p.m. at the Humboldt County ISU Extension Office. Humboldt Independent photo.

Residents of Humboldt will have the opportunity to view the final conceptual landscape designs created through the Community Visioning program, in which Humboldt has been a participant since February.
On Thursday, Sept. 7, from 3-5 p.m., Dylan Jones from Bolton & Menk, Inc., Trees Forever Field Coordinator Patty Reisinger, and Humboldt Community Visioning committee members will be available to answer questions regarding these designs. The viewing is set to take place at ISU Extension and Outreach, during Cy/Hawk day.
Some of the areas that have been addressed in these plans include downtown streetscape improvements, wayfinding signage and pedestrian connections for Humboldt.
Residents are strongly encouraged to attend this public viewing, where they can provide their input regarding the design concepts, as well as see the opportunities that exist to positively impact Humboldt. A brief presentation will be made at 3:30 p.m. by the landscape architect.
Residents who want more information or who are interested in participating in the Community Visioning process should contact Travis Goedken at (515) 332-3435 or Trees Forever Field Coordinator, Patty Reisinger 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.
