NL's diamonds under pressure

NORTH LIBERTY– North Liberty’s comprehensive plan for developing its city parks has been in place since 2009, but increasing demand for organized recreation has kicked it into high gear.
The North Liberty City Council and the city’s parks and recreation commission met jointly last Thursday, Dec. 6, to talk about plans for two of the city’s major park spaces: one of the oldest of the community’s parks, and the newest to date.

CCA growth: Perception is reality

UI Professor’s statistics back-up CCA enrollment growth projections

OXFORD– A draft report produced by a University of Iowa professor and one of his graduate students uses scientific methodology to pinpoint where enrollment growth is occurring in the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) school district, and maps-out the likely continuation of that growth.

Fox Ridge residents seek low density housing

SOLON– A group of Fox Ridge neighbors is asking the city to consider a more comprehensive approach to multifamily housing.
A contingent representing 23 households along Windflower Lane appeared before the Solon City Council last week asking for the preservation of low density housing across from the duplexes that line the east side of the street.

More TIF in Tiffin

TIFFIN– In order to address projects in the older part of town, the Tiffin City Council will expand its Urban Renewal Area, and subsequently increase its ability to collect Tax Increment Financing (TIF) revenues in the future.
At a Nov. 28 meeting, Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Superintendent Dr. Denise Schares appeared during the public comment portion of the council meeting to talk about the city’s intent to expand Tiffin’s Urban Renewal Plan and create an additional TIF designation within the city.

More data, more questions

OXFORD– They know how many kids are in seats now, and where those seats are. What they don’t know is how many more are coming, or when.
The Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Facilities Committee held their second meeting Monday, Nov. 12, at Clear Creek Elementary in Oxford, a school recently closed to open enrollment and the second in the district to do so due to lack of space. Committee Co-Chairs Malinda Lamb and Laura Kay Sheely distributed a revised proposed timeline, including data through the month of November.

First steps

CCA’s Facilities Study Committee organizes

OXFORD– Determining the next, best thing for students? That’s a task for the members of the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) school district’s Facilities Study Committee. Around 25 committee members, faculty and staff met Wednesday, Oct. 10, at the elementary school in Oxford for an organizational meeting.
The district is continuing to face increased enrollment and a resulting lack of space, leading to the potential need to expand existing facilities or even build new. The board approved a committee to explore the district’s needs and make recommendations to address them.

CCA board will likely green-light NBE expansion

TIFFIN— A six-classroom addition to the North Bend Elementary School in North Liberty will likely be approved next month. In the third work session this month, the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) school board continued to look at a list of enrollment growth options, including proposed the addition.
Four of the seven members– Terry Davis, Mic Kahler, president Eileen Schmidt and Ted Hergert– said the addition was their top choice among seven options the board has been discussing. Steve Swenka and Bob Broghammer elected to pursue other options, while Aimee Pitlick said she had no favorite choice.
