University Heights Community Visioning Grant Information
The 2016 Iowa's Living Roadways Community Visioning Process in University Heights is underway. We were awarded a grant to develop a process that encourages visionary and strategic thinking about transportation improvements. The centerpiece of this process is the development of conceptual plans that graphically illustrate the vision of University Heights for an improved transportation system.
