NORTH LIBERTY FUN DAYS
JUNE 7-10, 2012 Penn Meadows Park
North Liberty’s early-summer town festival features carnival rides and games for the kids, a community parade, two nights of live music, a well-known truck & tractor pull and lots of food supplied by community organizations. Fun Days will celebrate its 35th year in 2012. It’s generally believed that the city’s summer celebration dates back (not necessarily as Fun Days) to the 1960s. Back then, it was started as a small get-together. According to Bill Crippen (quoted in 1999), that was 1963 and the name of the event was North Liberty Days. Marvin Sass had been appointed mayor, and there were only 295 residents in town. Cherry Street was closed off in front of the old school and small amusement rides for children were brought in. Crippen said he built concession stands for other children’s games like a balloon toss and a milk bottle throw and the event was successful despite rain. North Liberty Days went on for another year before riding off into the sunset, but Crippen said it was replaced in the mid-1970s by a street dance which lasted a few years as well. In 1999, organizers extended the celebration, adding Thursday as a Family Night, with discounted prices on amusement rides.

THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS DEPARTMENT AND NORTH LIBERTY TELEVISION
The North Liberty Telecommunications Department is dedicated to informing the public on topics of local interest. Seen on cable channel 5 for Mediacom subscribers and channel 268 for South Slope viewers in North Liberty and live on the Internet from anywhere in the world, NLTV is the premier source for local information and event coverage. The Telecommunications Department also maintains the official City website at www.northlibertyiowa.org. The Telecommunications Director promotes City services and events to North Liberty residents. The Production Coordinator operates and maintains the local access channel. The Promotion Producer creates programming for and helps run NLTV. The department works closely with the Telecommunications Commission in developing and enforcing local cable TV guidelines and recommending telecommunications policy to the City Council.
NLTV is a PEG channel, meaning there is representation from three different sectors of the community: Public, Education, and Government. Volunteer-produced programs, such as church services and opinion talk shows are examples of public programs. The school districts of Iowa City and Clear Creek Amana provide their board meetings and other educational videos. North Liberty City staff and NLTV volunteers produce videos to inform the community on City projects and services. NLTV partners with local businesses and organizations to create educational video programs. Cooperative efforts include coverage of business-sponsored and Chamber of Commerce events.
COMMUNITY PROGRAMMING
NORTH LIBERTY TELEVISION
NLTV is North Liberty’s own local access cable channel, seen as channel 5 on Mediacom and 268 on South Slope and streaming online 24/7 at www.northlibertyiowa.org. The City of North Liberty and citizens of the North Liberty area produce the programming on this channel. NLTV is housed in the Community Programming Office in the North Liberty Community Center at 520 W. Cherry Street. Public meet-
NLTV can help your non-profit organization create exciting videos documenting events and services, and even create promotional videos. They have worked with the North Liberty Food and Clothing Pantry, Heritage Christian School and other groups to promote community-building through local television. Contact NLTV staff to see how they can help get the message of a non-profit on TV. The purpose of NLTV is community programming: showing and telling about our community to residents and others in the area. This can only be successful with strong community support. Anyone can submit a locally-relevant program to play on the channel. There are also many volunteer opportunities, from planning and scripting projects to shooting or editing video. If you are interested in volunteering for NLTV, please call, email or stop by the office.

To reserve shelters, tennis courts, ball fields and recreation equipment for personal use, call 626-5716. In 2009, the city purchased approximately 40 acres west of Jones Blvd. with plans for developing the land into park and public green space as the population expands on the west side of North Liberty. In the summer of 2011, the Parks Department installed a new $58,000 play structure at Penn Meadows Park. The custom Sky Builder structure is currently the only one of its kind in Iowa. The structure is featured on the front cover of the North Liberty Lifestyle/Business/ Education magazine 2012 and in a national playground calendar (All Inclusive Rec) in the month of May. In the summer of 2011, the City constructed a 10 foot-wide trail extending generally north/south, connecting the Johnson County trail to Dubuque Street, through Penn Meadows Park and along Front Street/Mehaffey Bridge Road. The project was completed October 2011, at a cost of around $875,000, with $342,000 being funding with a state transportation grant and the remaining balance funded with local tax dollars. In the summer of 2011, the City constructed a new parking lot made mostly of pervious concrete, and a rain garden at the south end of Penn Meadows Park. The installation of rain gardens, bioretention basins, infiltration trenches and native plantings will enhance the water runoff quality within the area and provide park users additional parking. The project was completed July 2011. The project cost was $313,000 with $100,000 funded by a state IJOBS grant and the remaining balance from local tax dollars. The City of North Liberty has received the Tree City USA Award for 16 years running. North Liberty plants approximately 200-300 trees and shrubs on city grounds and parks each year, making trees an important part of North Liberty.

NORTH LIBERTY DISCOVERY GUIDE 2012
The City of North Liberty has a variety of parks and a recreational trail for citizens and visitors to enjoy. The Parks and Recreation Commission was created in 1972 to make decisions about present and future parks and recreation facilities in North Liberty. The Tree Board was created in 1992 to make decisions about where and what types of trees should be planted throughout North Liberty’s public grounds. In the summer of 2006, the North Liberty City Council hired consultants to conduct a comprehensive study of the town’s parks, green spaces and trails. The resulting information was used to create a long-term park and trails plan to be included in the city’s official comprehensive plan. The plan, along with the Parks and Recreation Commission and the Tree Board, will guide the Mayor and City Council in future development decisions for North Liberty’s parks, trees, and outdoor recreational spaces. In March 2006, the city received a $58,000 grant from the United States Tennis Association (USTA) to build new tennis courts at Penn Meadows Park. The four courts, complete with lights and a windbreak fence were completed in the summer.

North Central Junior High, located at 180 East Forevergreen Rd. in North Liberty, was the Iowa City Community School District’s (ICCSD) third school built in North Liberty using $39 million in bond money approved by voters in February 2003. In 2006-07, North Central first opened its doors for 7th and 8th grade students from Penn, Wickham and Van Allen, later adding students from Garner Elementary, which opened in 2010. The $6.7 million, 450-student capacity school currently will have approximately 460 students in grades 7-8 fro 2012-13. The school was designed to be expanded to house an eventual total of 600 students. North Central mirrors the same High Performance Design principles as Van Allen, using a geo-thermal heat pump system that relies on the earth’s constant temperature as a heat
source. Geo-thermal provides a long-term, low cost energy efficient heating and cooling system Other High Performance qualities of North Central Junior High include use of daylighting, high indoor air quality, environmentally responsible building materials, water conservation and recycling and waste management. Also, the building has an energy efficient building shell and uses energy efficient mechanical, ventilation and electrical systems. The building’s porcelain tile floors are low maintenance, which use less intense detergents. Unique features of North Central Junior High embrace the preserving of Muddy Creek as an outdoor science laboratory for students to enjoy and learn. The school also has the latest computer technology for students to take courses at other institutions over an interactive Internet system.

CLEAR CREEK AMANA SCHOOL DISTRICT
University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics provide some of the highest quality healthcare found anywhere in the United States. The district serves 1,755 students preK-12 and is growing. District enrollment increased by over 500 students during 2000-2010. The district operates 5 attendance centers with a high school in Tiffin (100 students 9-12), a middle school in Tiffin (370 students 6-8) and elementary centers in Middle Amana (145 students K-5), North Liberty (365 students K-5) and Oxford (365 students K-5). The community support of education is evidenced by the opening of the North Bend Elementary building in 2008 and a high school building in 2009. A state of the art athletic complex opened in the fall of 2009 and the performing arts center opened in the fall of 2010. Each attendance center has a full time building principal. The district has a full time technology coordinator and full time nurse. Of the 121 certified teachers, over thirty percent have been with the district for 15 years or more. The staff is caring and committed to providing the best education possible for all students.
The Clear Creek Amana School District covers over 250 square miles of beautiful eastern Iowa countryside, ranging from hills and woods to open farming. The Iowa River Valley and Coralville Reservoir provide residents with recreational opportunities as well as outstanding scenery. The school district encompasses the towns of Tiffin (population 1,900), Oxford (population 700), and the seven villages of the historic Amana Colonies (population 1,675). The eastern edge of the district is inside the city limits of Coralville and North Liberty. The total population of the district is about 8,000. The district is located 7 miles west of Iowa City and 20 miles south of Cedar Rapids. Both Interstates 80 and 380 pass through the district providing easy access to Des Moines (100 miles), Chicago (220 miles) and points beyond. The location provides a rural setting, yet within minutes offers the cultural opportunities of a Big Ten university (the University of Iowa), the urban opportunities of a major city (Cedar Rapids), and the charm and uniqueness of the Amana Colonies, a national historic site and Iowa’s number one tourist destination. The University of Iowa offers a Ph. D. in Educational Leadership.
