    PUBLIC INVITED TO WEIGH IN ON STATEWIDE HOUSING POLICY



    Perry, IA - This summer, Iowans will have the opportunity to help to
    form Iowa's housing policy at a series of meetings hosted by Iowa State
    University Extension. These public meetings will be held at various
    locations around the state in June and July and will feature panels of
    experts presenting housing priorities and goals.



    ISU Extension and the Town/Craft center in Perry, Iowa, are hosting the
    meetings to gather input from Iowans about housing needs and priorities,
    as part of an ongoing process to develop a state housing policy. The
    topics to be discussed were identified by community leaders from across
    the state and top national and regional experts during a housing policy
    roundtable sponsored by ISU Extension and Town/Craft in April 2009.



    Housing policy roundtable participants identified five topics as
    crucial: governance, funding, sustainable housing design, capacity
    building and planning policy. Each meeting will begin with presentations
    on each topic by a panel of experts who attended the roundtable, after
    which participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and make
    recommendations. The meetings will close with refreshments and an
    informal networking session.



    Input from the meetings will be used when the full group of experts
    reconvenes this August.



    All meetings are on Wednesday afternoons, and start at 1 pm. The meeting
    dates and locations are as follows:

    June 17, Ottumwa, ISU Ottumwa County Extension Office
    June 24, Sioux City, ISU Design West
    July 1, Waterloo, Hawkeye Community College
    July 8, Atlantic, Cass County Community Center
    July 15, Des Moines, location to be announced
    July 22, Bettendorf, location to be announced



    Prior to each meeting, more detailed information regarding location will
    be announced locally.



    The center for Town/Craft is an alliance of Hometown Perry, Iowa, the
    ISU College of Design and ISU Extension Community and Economic
    Development for the purpose of identifying and developing new "ideas and
    strategies that strengthen small communities". For information regarding
    the Iowa Housing Policy Initiative, contact Mickey Carlson at

    [IowaAPA] RE: Iowa Housing Policy

    Good topic, but why are we not using our state fiber-optic system which would tie-in many more people at more locations, and avoid costly travel and gas consumption and time away from work?
