Upcoming Events


Presentation of Visioning Final Concepts

5:00 pm - 7:00 pm, Wapello High School Cafeteria

Wapello is participating in the 2018 Community Visioning Program. The goal of this project is to develop a landscape plan that will graphically illustrate the vision of Wapello. You are invited to see the new ideas created this summer.

Please plan to attend on Thursday, October 4 from 5:00-7:00 at the High School Cafeteria during the Volleyball games.  This is your opportunity to discuss the proposed projects with local committee members, the design team, and Trees Forever staff.  Designs will also be on display at other community locations at a later time.

Kick-off for Wapello Community Visioning

Community Visioning

On Thursday, November 9, 2017, nine (9) community members headed to Ames, IA to kick-off the Iowa Living Roadways and Trees Forever Visioning Grant.  The group is really excited to get started and report back to the community on what all we have learned.


Community Assessments

The group will be looking for community input to help create a series of plans to make Wapello.
