Lincoln Corridor Plan, Sustainable Parks

Kelly Diekmann, Ames Planning & Housing Director, describes the City of Ames' Lincoln Corridor Plan for future development of areas along Lincoln Way, including transportation, housing, land use, urban development, economic development, and infrastructure. The plan responds to a shift in priorities expressed by Ames residents away from being oriented towards car transportation, to "road diets" making way for a more walkable and cycling city with public transportation playing a larger role.

Merry Rankin, Director of Sustainability for ISU and Ames Sustainability Coordinator, and Joshua Thompson, Ames Parks & Recreation Superintendent, describe how park maintenance workers focus on sustainability while caring for Ames parks.

Pat Schlarbaum describes peregrine falcon (now hatching) and their return to Iowa after extinction.
