Iolans will discuss at length potential improvements to the city’s downtown business district at the next Vision Iola meeting Thursday at the Senior Citizens Center.
The 6 p.m. meeting will include a walking tour of the square, said Dale Stafford, a designer with Landworks Studio of Olathe. Landworks and Thrive Allen County are working with the city on the Vision Iola process.
Participants have already studied community identity and potential signage improvements.
The walking tour will allow participants to fill out their own assessments of Iola’s downtown square, Stafford said, and identify ways in which it can be improved.
Input from Thursday’s meeting will be processed by Landworks with enhancement ideas offered at another meeting later this month.
Vision Iola’s focus in April will be on parks and trails, including sidewalks.
