Since January of this year, the community of Manning has been working with experts from Iowa State University Extension Landscape Architecture and Trees Forever on the conceptual phase of the Iowa’s Living Roadways Community Visioning Program, and is ready to provide residents the opportunity to view the results of their conjoined efforts. On Thursday, July 28, from 5 to 7 p.m., landscape architect, Jennifer Cross with RDG and intern Ashleigh Gildon will join Trees Forever field coordinator, Brad Riphagen and the Manning Community Visioning Committee to present the final conceptual landscape designs. The public is invited to view and discuss the designs as well as offer feedback on the projects proposed in the Fireside Room at the German Hausbarn Konferenz Centre in Manning. The group will be presenting plans for downtown amenities, Highway 141 artwork and designs for Milwaukee Trestle Park. Any Manning residents who are interested in participating in the visioning process or those who would like more information on the projects and presentations can contact Geri Spies at 712-655-2202 or Brad Riphagen at 515-370-1291.
