2015 Stellar Community Finalist!!

Best Choice RibbonThe Town of North Liberty is one of two communities under 6,000 in population to be awarded Stellar Communities designation.  This is a huge honor for our community – a town in this part of the state has never been chosen.  Prior to the Stellar announcement, on August 17th at the State Fair, nine various state agencies will be touring North Liberty on the afternoon of July 24, 2015.  We are asking everyone to take extra care with mowing and maintaining your property that week.  Help us tell our story and showcase our great community.  If the town of North Liberty is awarded Stellar, it opens funding opportunities to the Town to accomplish desires of our community that were stated in our 2014 comprehensive plan surveys.  Spray pad at our Town Park, a trail to Potato Creek State Park, five additional senior housing duplexes, downtown business marketing and tourism, downtown façade program, WPA Town Park Restoration Phase II.  What a great opportunity!!
