Iowa's Living Roadways Community Visioning Program

Stuart is one of ten communities chosen to participate in the Iowa Living Roadways Community Visioning grant program.  This is a partnership between Trees Forever, Iowa State University, the Iowa DOT, and private landscape architects from Bolton and Menk.  The types of projects of focus are:

  • Transportation corridor enhancements
  • Signage
  • Roadside park development
  • Entryways
  • Trail and sidewalk system planning

The program is a multi-stage process that is citizen led with opportunities for community members to give their input.


Goals of the Program

Our priority goals for the project include:

  • Safe Routes to School/Pedestrian Safety
  • Wayfinding/Identity
  • Traffic Calming/Streetscape
  • Park Plantings
