About the Project

The City of Iowa City has a great downtown and pedestrian mall, and it’s a wonderful use of space that attracts students, potential students, and visitors from around the world.

The Inspire Downtown Iowa City project is hosted on the platform for community crowd-sourced idea gathering and implementation. This collaborative approach brings people together working on solutions. Having a focused online social network levels the playing field and allows all stakeholders to participate and have a voice, even if their work schedules or other commitments make it impossible to attend community meetings.
