The regular quarterly meeting of the Iowa Great Places Citizens Advisory Board was convened in Perry Monday morning at La Poste.
The board is an instrument of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and the Iowa Arts Council and chooses finalists from among the places — neighborhoods, cities, counties or regions — that have submitted proposals with the state to become an “Iowa Great Place.”
The board tours the finalist places and selects designees. The program aims to “create bold thought, innovation and entrepreneurship at the local and regional level in Iowa,” according to its website.
“Wonderful to hear all the amazing things happening across the state in other Iowa Great Places!” said a Perry Chamber of Commerce spokesperson.
Perry recently renewed its status as an Iowa Great Place.
