Public invited to design workshops for community development


The upcoming Design Workshop Open House, part of North Liberty’s year-long effort to gather public input and build a vision for the city in 2040 called Connected to Tomorrow, will provide the public with opportunities to work with the plan design team to develop concepts to improve transportation, shopping areas, downtown, entrances, parks and more.

The two open houses, both held at the Community Center, 520 W. Cherry St., are scheduled for April 21, 2022, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., in the conference room Gerdin 1 of the Recreation Department on the ground floor. The workshops are in the form of an open day; and admission can be offered in as little as 15 minutes.

Participants can expect to learn more about the plan and work alongside the plan design team to think about future land use, identify growth and mobility improvements, plan future parks and trails and provide input on many other planning items, including housing, community services and business growth.

This input will be incorporated into North Liberty’s updated comprehensive plan, a document that helps the community direct economic development and growth. Since then, North Liberty has seen progress and development, including new neighborhoods and parks, improved transportation infrastructure, and the start of a new healthcare campus. Through Connected to Tomorrow, North Liberty will develop a comprehensive new plan to help realize ambitious ideas inspired by community input.

Ways to get involved, details and planning updates for Connected to Tomorrow are available on the project website at
