Students from the urban and regional planning graduate program at the University of Iowa will present the results of a year-long economic impact study of the Trout Run Trail to the Winneshiek County Board of Supervisors at noon Monday, May 9, at the Winneshiek County Courthouse.
The presentation is open to the public.

The students have spent the last academic year conducting an economic impact study that quantifies the success of the Trout Run Trail, as well as developing a methodology for evaluating future trail projects across the county, region and state. The students also created a development strategy to evaluate potential routes that could fill in gaps in the regional trail network and connect outlying communities.

During the presentation the students will make recommendations based on their yearlong efforts and answer any questions from the audience. The project is collaboration between Winneshiek County Conservation, Upper Explorerland Regional Planning Commission and the Iowa Initiative for Sustainable Communities program at the University of Iowa.
