Residents will have the opportunity to share their ideas for improving Huxley at a design workshop hosted by the Huxley Community Visioning committee at the Huxley Safe Room on Aug. 11. This workshop is the culmination of an input-gathering process to identify transportation needs and opportunities for enhancements in Huxley. Information collected at public input gathering events conducted earlier this spring will be incorporated into a conceptual transportation and a design team will be working at the Huxley Safe Room throughout the workshop to develop a conceptual plan that meets the goals and needs of Huxley. The public is invited to stop in between 1 and 6 p.m. to provide input on the designs.

The workshop will conclude with a reception and review of the preliminary designs created during the workshop. The reception is from 6 to 6:30 p.m. at the Huxley Safe Room and is open to the public.

To learn more about participating in the design workshop, please call Selden Spencer at 515-231-2745 or Leslie Berckes, Trees Forever field coordinator, at 515-681-2295.

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.
