Stanton to Host Community Vision Panels | News


(Stanton) — A KMAland community has announced that it will participate in a transportation planning process designed for smaller communities.

The City of Stanton will participate in Iowa’s Living Roadways Community Visioning Program in 2022, which serves Iowa communities with populations under 10,000. Stanton is one of 10 communities participating in the program. Stanton Community Development Manager Jenna Ramsey joined KMA’s “Morning Show” on Monday, and she says her community committee has already begun the process of preparing for community engagement.

“So we had two meetings and the viewing committee learned about audience participation techniques, and we did online polls,” Ramsey said. “Then the next step in the process will be a focus group workshop and that’s Saturday April 9 from 9-11am at Stanton Community Schools. So to really engage Stanton area residents and members and we invite everyone to participate in this session.”

The Stanton Vision Committee is made up of Ramsey, Sheila Mainquist, Kevin Cabbage, Mickey Anderson. However, Ramsey says they are still looking for people interested in joining the steering committee.

The April 9 workshop will provide several demographics within the community to offer feedback on transportation opportunities and needs in Stanton in a small group setting.

“The workshop will include six focus groups for each of the following demographic groups,” Ramsey explained. “The steering committee, people aged 65 and over, people with reduced mobility, active leisure enthusiasts, parents and children.”

From there, Ramsey says they’ll look to the fall for a presentation of the results.

“Once we collect the data, there will be other ways to get community insights,” Ramsey said. “And then this fall, we’ll be hosting a presentation and giving an update on the feedback we’ve received and the plan for the next opportunity.”

The program is designed to help community volunteers consider aesthetic and ecological improvements along roads and related landscapes by linking environmental stewardship with community improvement projects.
