Dan DeGeest's Council Review

 

 

Hello Friends,

  • The meeting on the 13th was a long one, going over four hours with discussion regarding the annexation of the Auburn Trail Subdivision (Item #29) taking up a good chunk of the time.  Annexations are always polarizing and this one was no different.  There were updates and actions on some big projects such as the airport hanger, a community healthy life center, community solar, and more.  See below for details.
  • City Council is winding down for 2016 with just one more meeting scheduled on December on the 20th. 

Thanks for reading.

Hi Friends,

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  No matter what is going on in the world we can always find things to be thankful for if we really take time to reflect.  We should try to do this daily but it seems Thanksgiving week is often the impetus that affords us time to really take a step back and acknowledge the things that make our life great.  The City Council covered quite a range of topics including several projects that have been in progress over the last year such as the Lincoln Way Corridor Study.  Please see below for some highlights.

Thanks for reading.

Dan DeGeest's Council Review

 

Hello Friends,

It has been a few weeks since the last review and a lot has happened, most notably a national election.  Like all elections, some were pleased with the outcome and some were disappointed but I have never seen those feelings as extreme and amplified as they are this time around.  Personally, I took it as a wake up call - a chance to double down on my efforts at the local level.  I have always felt that locally is where we have the best chance to really make a difference, to truly impact each others lives, and to realize the world we believe can and should exist globally.  Now is not the time to give up - it is time to roll up sleeves and work even harder.

Special meeting of the Ames City Council

Community Room Of Bethesda Lutheran Church (1517 Northwestern Ave.)

Tues, Nov 1, 2016, 6:30 p.m.

 

In discussing the need for a new indoor community pool, the idea was floated of a partnership between several entities that would result in a more comprehensive wellness facility. This hypothetical facility could have a pool, walking track, wellness activity rooms, etc. Other interested parties include those groups attending this workshop. Tonight's workshop will be a general overview of the concept so far. No official studies have yet been done on this topic, those will be some of the next steps, if Council and the other parties are committed to moving forward.
