GRANGER — Residents of Granger will have the opportunity to view the final conceptual landscape designs created through the Community Visioning program, in which Granger has been a participant since January.


On Sept. 20, from 6-8 p.m., Eric Holt, from Genus Landscape Architects of Des Moines, Trees Forever Field Coordinator Patty Reisinger, and Granger Community Visioning committee members will be available to answer questions regarding these designs. The viewing is set to take place at the Granger Community Center at 2200 Walnut Street, during an ice cream social. Stop by to see the ideas and enjoy ice cream. The materials will be shown as an open house so stop in anytime during the open house.


Some of the areas that have been addressed in these plans include a regional trail concept, local trail hub, creek crossing and downtown streetscape.


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 Granger.


Residents who want more information or who are interested in participating in the Community Visioning process should contact Sharon Wiese at 515-999-2177 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.
