2016-2017: DeWitt, Iowa


In the fall of 2016 and spring of 2017, SWLI’s smaller-scale partnership with DeWitt, Iowa will involve two urban design classes within the geography department that will look at current zoning laws in the city. The students meet with residents, hold community meetings, and in the end offer a report that suggests changes to the ordinances in conjuncture with Smart Growth design concepts, featuring mostly ideas concerning walkability and how to incorporate sustainable development into their current plans.
