Be a part of shaping the future of the Dyersville area by thinking big, thinking small or anywhere in between. The Dyersville Area Chamber of Commerce is encouraging people to participate in Imagine 2030, a community vision process that will engage community members in a collaborative, community-wide visioning process to identify five ideas to be implemented by the year 2030.

This is the second time the community is going through the vision process. Back in 2008, Imagine 2020 was launched, where 569 ideas were collected and narrowed down to 30 ideas. The public voted for their favorite five projects and four were completed. Those five ideas were:

• Social Center

• Overpass on Highway 20

• Pedestrian bridge between Candy Cane Park and West Side Park

• Build walking/biking trails

• Alzheimer’s/dementia unit — not completed

“It’s hard to believe a decade has passed since we went through Imagine 2020,” said Karla Thompson, executive director of the Dyersville Area Chamber of Commerce. “When people come together for the same goals, more can happen as a result. Those efforts are now targeted, focused and interconnected.”

This community project is funded in part through a grant from the Dyersville Area Community Foundation.

People can submit their ideas at www.dyersville.org now through March 25. The public will vote for five projects in May.
