Watershed Planning for Communities
Plan for growth and development. Minimize effects of flooding. Protect drinking water resources. Each of these goals has something in common – they all occur within a watershed. Yet traditional urban and community-based planning does not always take a ‘watershed approach’.
The Iowa Stormwater Education Program and Iowa DNR have partnered to bring the “Watershed Planning for Communities” workshops to the Cedar River Watershed. Local decision makers are invited to attend, including local elected officials, city and county level planners, planning and zoning commission members, developers, and anyone else with a vested interest in watershed planning. The workshop will be held in three locations – Washington on May 1, Mason City on May 7, and Hiawatha on May 8. Each workshop will take place from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm.
Here are some of the topics that will be addressed through presentations from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, RDG Planning & Design, MSA Professional Services, and the Iowa Association of Regional Councils of Government.
Dates: Tuesday, May 7, Wednesday, May 8 - 8:00 am - 4:30 pm
Locations: 5/7 Mason City, 5/8 Hiawatha
