Van Meter Visioning Committee Seeks Residents’ Input

Steering Committee –, AARON BREWER, Trees Forever, (319)373-0650, ext 114

VAN METER, IA (1/3/19) – Van Meter 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 Van Meter’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 Van Meter visioning committee.
Survey packets were mailed to randomly selected residents in Van Meter in December. If you received a packet, it’s not too late to complete the questionnaire and mail it back using the enclosed postage-paid envelope. Additional packets will be mailed to those who have not already responded this week.

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

To learn more about participating in the visioning process, please contact the steering committee at or Aaron Brewer, Trees Forever field coordinator, at (319)373-0650, ext 114.

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.
