Conceptual landscape designs, like this one for Gateway Park, will be available for viewing, and for Monona residents to give their input on, at a presentation at the Monona City Park Thursday, Sept. 8, from 4 to 6 p.m. The designs were created through Monona’s participation in the Community Visioning Program.

Residents of Monona will have the opportunity to view the final conceptual landscape designs created through the Community Visioning Program, in which Monona has been a participant since January.

On Thursday, Sept. 8, from 4 to 6 p.m., David Stokes and Eric Doll from Jeffery L. Bruce & Company, Trees Forever Field Coordinator Patty Reisinger and members of the Monona Community Visioning Committee will be available to answer questions regarding these designs. This public viewing is set to take place at Monona City Park during the Monona bandstand centennial celebration, also from 4 to 6 p.m., where the public may also enjoy an old-fashioned ice cream social and music in the bandstand while looking over the final draft landscape design concepts.

Some of the areas that have been addressed in these plans include a trail system, beautification, city parks, safety and wayfinding signage.   

Residents are strongly encouraged to attend this public viewing, where they can provide their input regarding the design concepts, as well as see the opportunities that exist to positively impact Monona. This will be the last public input session before these conceptual landscape designs are finalized, grant applications take place and some of these projects may start implementation.

Residents who want more information or who are interested in participating in the visioning process should contact Rogeta Halvorson at (563) 880-9190 or Patty Reisinger at (319) 350-4185.

The Iowa’s Living Roadways Community Visioning Program is sponsored by the Iowa Department of Transportation, in partnership with Iowa State University Extension Landscape Architecture and Trees Forever.
