“Imagine Iowa Great Lakes” is a beautification project along the Highway 71 corridor from Spirit Lake to Milford and involves Des Moines-based McClure Engineering
and Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects of Chicago. Preliminary plans were presented during a public meeting in May at the Pearson Lakes Art Center. The first phase
of the project has been funded by $10 million in private donations and is
expected to get underway this fall. More details can be found at
