Community Development hosted an Iowa State University Landscape Architecture studio studying community engagement on October 15th and 16th. The students helped kids create their dream Alisal Street out of Legos at Ciclovía as Visión Salinas ambassadors, and observed how the City conducts outreach events. The students also toured the Alisal neighborhood and had community engagement training with Building Healthy Communities, East Salinas. The class will use this knowledge as they work on projects in Perry, Iowa, a small town that has experienced a rapid influx of Latino immigrants and is searching for ways to improve their outreach and collaboration with their new neighbors.
