As per the City Council Meeting on Thursday night, the following event has been postponed. However, if you would like to participate, please feel free to sign up at the link below.


Vinton is participating in the 2023 Iowa's Living Roadways Community Visioning Program. Community Visioning is a transportation enhancement planning process that serves Iowa communities under 10,000 in population.

The program helps community volunteers envision aesthetic and ecological improvements along roadsides and related landscapes by blending environmental stewardship with community improvement projects. Vinton is one of ten communities selected to participate in this award-winning program.

At its first two meetings, the Vinton visioning committee learned public involvement techniques that they will use in the visioning process to assess local resources and identify community needs. The information gathered will be used to develop a transportation concept plan.

The next step in the process will be a focus group workshop on February 11th from 9:00am-12:30pm at Vinton Shellsburg High School. Residents will be invited to share their ideas regarding transportation opportunities and needs in Vinton in a small group setting.

The workshop will consist of six focus groups for each of the following demographics: steering committee members, older adults (65 years old and older), those with limited mobility, active recreationists, parents, and children (6 years old and older). Each focus group will take approximately one hour.

To participate in one of the focus groups, go to and click on "Public Input."
