Design workshop in Scranton Thursday

Share ideas for improving Scranton

Scranton residents can share their ideas for improving Scranton at a design workshop hosted by the Scranton visioning committee at Scranton city hall Thursday, June 8.

This workshop is the culmination of an input-gathering process to identify transportation needs and opportunities for enhancements in Scranton. Information collected at public input gathering events conducted earlier this spring will be incorporated into a conceptual transportation and landscape enhancement plan.

A design team will be working at city hall throughout the workshop to develop a conceptual plan that meets the goals and needs of Scranton. The public is invited to stop in between 1 and 4 pm to provide input on the designs. Results from the focus-group workshops will also be available.

The workshop will conclude with a review of the preliminary designs created during the workshop. The review is from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, also at city hall, and is open to the public.

To learn more about participating in the design workshop, call Scranton city clerk Melinda Hinners at 712-652-3888 or Brad Riphagen of Trees Forever at 515-370-1291.

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.
