We want to know what you think!

Alleman is participating in the 2021 Community Visioning Program. Iowa State University is gathering information from community members to learn your opinions on how to improve the community’s landscape through transportation enhancements. The goal of this project is to develop a landscape plan that illustrates the vision of Alleman. Your input is an important part of this process and your ideas about community design and enhancement are valuable to the Alleman visioning committee.

Join us for virtual focus groups

In this participatory assessment, we want to find out which factors and conditions affect transportation use in Alleman, where these factors and conditions are most prevalent, and how they influence route and transportation choices locally. Because residents have the best knowledge of how Alleman’s transportation system works, we use focused, small-group conversations, mapping, and photos of the best and worst to understand local transportation. We conduct focus groups with a variety of user types, including parents, youth, older adults, people with mobility issues, and active recreationists, to identify factors that affect transportation use. We will be conducting virtual focus groups with these user types on the following dates and times:

Tuesday, March 23 at 5:00 pm: Steering Committee Members
Tuesday, March 23 at 6:30 pm: Active Recreationists

Saturday, March 27 at 10:30 am: People with mobility issues
Saturday, March 27 at 10:30 am: Youth 12 and younger
Saturday, March 27 at 12:00 pm: Older Adults (65 and older)
Saturday, March 27 at 12:00 pm: Youth 13 and older
Saturday, March 27 at 1:30 pm: Parents

The deadline to sign up is noon the day of the focus group in which you want to participate.

Because the focus groups are place based, we will be sharing a map on the screen during the discussion. If you would like to download a map of the community, click on the Map button below:
