CAT meeting is rescheduled

Belle Plaine officials will have to wait another month to make their second bid for a $513,000 Community Attractions and Tourism grant for the city’s streetscape project.

The Vision Iowa Board Tuesday morning canceled its Feb. 10 meeting due to the snowstorm that was expected to impact travel conditions this week.

“We simply do not want to put Iowans on dangerous roads unnecessarily,” stated Vision Iowa/CAT Program Manager Alaina Santizo in an email announcing cancellation of the meeting.

The board will hear Belle Plaine’s presentation, along with six other projects vying for CAT funding, at its March 10 meeting at the Botanical Center in Des Moines. The Star Press Union will publish more information as it becomes available.
