Algona Visioning Transportation Assets and Barriers Focus Groups

Algona Public Library starting at 9 a.m.

Algona is participating in a Community Visioning process with several partners (ISU, Trees Forever, private landscape architects, etc.) to develop a community transportation enhancement plan.  Keep in mind transportation means more than simply car and truck traffic.  Walking, biking, jogging, golf carting, etc. are all forms of transportation.

  2. Saturday, Feb. 26 from 9 to 10 a.m.           Older Adults

Focus groups planned for Feb. 26

Algona is participating in a Community Visioning process with several partners (ISU, Trees Forever, private landscape architects, etc.) to develop a community transportation enhancement plan.  Keep in mind transportation means more than simply car and truck traffic.  Walking, biking, jogging, golf carting, etc. are all forms of transportation.

While we have a local steering committee, this Community Visioning process needs input from invited members of the community.  To gather local input from the larger community, virtual focus groups are scheduled for the following dates and times:

Algona Public Library, 210 N. Phillips St. Algona IA

  1. Saturday, Feb. 26 from 9 to 10 a.m.          Mobility Impaired
  2. Saturday, Feb. 26 from 9 to 10 a.m.           Older Adults
  3. Saturday, Feb. 26 from 10 to 11 a.m.           Parents
  4. Saturday, Feb. 26 from 10 to 11 a.m.          Active Recreationists

 

Having local input is important to our steering committee because:

  • We value feedback from all community members and try to get as many perspectives as possible
  • Developing this transportation enhancement plan will take a community wide effort
  • We don’t have all the answers but would like to address as many transportation obstacles or barriers as possible

 

How can you assist and why?

  • In order to make this plan useful to the entire community we need input from the entire community. This is your opportunity to make your voice heard.
  • Participating in a focus group is perhaps the highest form of community pride; it shows that you care about your community, how it looks, and how it can be improved.
  • The process is fun! A small group setting is perfect to share ideas and highlight obstacles.
