Denison is one of 10 Iowa communities that have been selected to participate in Iowa’s Living Roadways Community Vision Program in 2022.

The award-winning program integrates technical landscape planning and design techniques with sustainable community action to help community leaders and volunteers make wise and meaningful decisions about the local landscape.

The other nine selected communities are Dysart, Gilmore City, Glenwood, Independence, Marquette, McGregor, Slater, Vinton and West Burlington.

The program is sponsored by the Iowa Department of Transportation in partnership with Iowa State University Landscape Architecture Extension and Trees Forever, an Iowa-based nonprofit environmental advocacy organization.

Additionally, professional landscape architects offer expertise in creating conceptual design plans for communities.

To qualify for the visioning program, a community must have a population of less than 10,000, existing transportation issues, and a committee of volunteers willing to contribute their time and talent to the visioning process.

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, an Iowa-based nonprofit whose mission is to plant trees and take care of the environment.
