“Imagine Hours” will invite Community Members to Dream

March 31, 2022

Series of sessions an opportunity for the public to share ideas

What do you love about your community? Where do you spend your time? How could the place you call home be better?  

These questions and more will be asked during a series of community-wide idea sharing sessions open to the public this April and May. The “Imagine Hours” are designed to engage the residents of Pottawattamie County in collective thinking about the future of our community. The ideas will help inform the Iowa West Foundation’s strategic planning process. 

“This is an opportunity for anyone and everyone in the community to share your thoughts on our future,” said Brenda Mainwaring, President and CEO of IWF. “The hour-long, interactive sessions will engage participants in thoughtful conversations about possibilities and potential and offer attendees a fun and energizing way to provide input and ideas. 

“We are eager to hear from community members.” 

Dates for sessions include: 

April 9th – Destination Coffee in Oakland – 10 a.m. 

April 21st – PACE – 6 p.m. 

April 25th – Reiver Room @IWCC – noon
