Telegraph Herald highlights Heart & Soul in Cascade
In Cascade, like many small towns in the Greater Dubuque region, residents are working together to determine what issues will help keep their community vital — and developing a plan to address them.
This week, the Dubuque Telegraph Herald newspaper highlighted the efforts of the Heart & Soul team in Cascade, calling attention to a free community event on Wednesday, July 19. The event will include a concert and opportunities for residents to talk with Heart & Soul representatives about Cascade's strengths and potential areas for improvement.
The feedback the Cascade Heart & Soul team collects will be compiled into a report for City Council to help guide future decision-making.
“Strong rural communities are integral to the future success of the entire Greater Dubuque region,” says Jason Neises, community development coordinator for the Community Foundation. “The Heart & Soul process is empowering rural residents to build a hopeful future for the communities they love based on their shared passion and vision. Through it, we are seeing positive impacts not just in Cascade but also Bellevue, Monticello and Madison County.”
