Debi Durham, Director Iowa Economic Development Authority: "In my visits to Manning, I have experienced its vibrancy - it is indeed a very special place. Their engaged citizenry unites around a common vision, and because of the commitment of both the public and the private sectors, that vision can be realized." and "Through Manning's sustained efforts and constant work to partner....The community certainly sets an example for others to follow.
