Past Meetings

Community Workshop #1 - Wednesday October 24, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at Kirn Middle School (100 North Avenue)
This workshop is the first of many face-to-face community outreach events scheduled throughout the planning process. The purpose of this workshop is to allow residents to provide input, before any plans or recommendations are formulated. The workshop will: (a) review the purpose of the Comprehensive Plan, the planning process to be undertaken, and the schedule for the project; and (b) secure local views on concerns, issues and potentials within the community.

Business Workshop -  Thursday, October 25, 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. at Looft Hall Conference Center (Iowa West Community College, 2700 College Road, then follow directional signage to Looft Hall)
The Business Workshop will be an opportunity for business owners to discuss issues and challenges related to establishing, operating and growing a business in Council Bluffs. Business owners have unique needs and experience unique challenges in any community. It is critical that the Comprehensive Plan consider these.
