UI Students Work to Improve Town

Updated: Friday, October 11 2013, 08:46 AM CDT
WASHINGTON, Iowa (AP) -- A University of Iowa program that teams students with community leaders to improve the social, environmental, and economic conditions in small cities is working with Washington in southeast Iowa.
   The Iowa Initiative for Sustainable Communities was launched in 2009 by the University of Iowa's School of Urban and Regional Planning to help small cities with improvement projects.
   In Washington students in art, business, engineering, and library science are working under the direction of university faculty, the Washington Public Library, the Washington Chamber of Commerce, and the city.
   Projects include developing a branding campaign for the Washington Chamber of Commerce, improving the city library's search capabilities, completing a mural painting on the back of the library building, a concert series, and a new park on the north side of the city.
