Webster County Conservation

Iowa | Water

Overview

ISG collaborated with the Webster County Conservation Board (WCCB) to develop a master plan focused on the environmental goals of the organization.


Opportunity

The WCCB needed to develop an actionable plan for its water and natural resources.

Solution

The WCCB finalized its Strategic Plan in 2017, identifying the critical issues of managing multi-faceted growth, diversifying revenue, creating a brand and image, growing participation in programming, and balancing the values of conservation and recreation throughout the system. As a next step in efforts to further the goals outlined in the Strategic Plan, ISG worked with WCCB staff and the steering committee to develop the Parks, Facilities, and Recreation Master Plan.

The Master Plan provides a framework for implementation that includes an inventory and analysis of existing parks and amenities, a phasing and permitting schedule, conceptual renderings and site plans, and construction-ready opinions of probable cost for the proposed improvements, all with the goal of preparing WCCB for the next phase: realization of their visio.
