Washington County Regional Rec & Trail Plan

A collaboration of several communities and organizations around Washington County are working with MSA Professional Services on developing a regional Recreation and Trail Plan. To some extent, this will be a synthesis of past individual planning efforts, as well as an opportunity for new ideas to emerge. Over 2017-18, a steering committee of community officials will help guide a public planning process that engages the people in the region for their input.

You can follow the planning process on its web site, and even sign up for (very occasional) e-mail updates.


Who is on the Steering Committee?

- Washington (City Admin, Brent Hinson, & Park Dir, Nick Pacha)
- Kalona (City Admin, Ryan Schlabaugh, & Ben Curtis)
- County Conservation (Steve Anderson, & brd mbr Barb Donkersloot)
- Wash Co Riverboat Foundation (Tom Basten)
- Wellman (City Admin, Kelly Litwiller)
- Riverside (City Admin, Lory Young)
- Keota Unlimited (Ray-Man pres., Melinda Eakins)
- Friends of Lake Darling (Don Kline)
- and Ed Raber from WEDG providing coordination
