Share your ideas for improving the community at a design workshop at Town Hall during Hoover’s Hometown Days! This is the final part for gathering feedback about your interests and needs in travel, opportunities, and improvements in West Branch.

The Design Workshop will develop a conceptual plan that meets the goals and needs of West Branch. The public is invited to stop in between 11am and 2pm to provide input on the designs. See results from the focus group workshops and the community transportation survey, too! The Community Visioning design team will be available throughout the workshop to take your feedback.
