The League will host a day-long workshop focused on leveraging local government data on September 18. The workshop will incorporate the themes of city finance, housing, and transportation, including information related to older adults and the overall community. The day will also include an immersive problem-solving session, designed to bring together city officials and data experts to explore and solve a local issue: mobility in Marshalltown.  

The agenda also includes a “smart cities” demonstration project from Marshalltown, using the roadmap and input gained in the workshop session. The demonstration project is made possible through a partnership between the League and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach’s Office of Community and Economic Development.
