Seeking Web Site Feedback

The LCTA Public Awareness Committee is seeking input on the LCTA website (, including this blog site. A web site redesign may be appropriate in the future to improve lines of communication between LCTA and the community. Any advice or particular recommendations toward that goal will be appreciated. A few questions to stimulate discussion:

How often do you frequent the web site? If content were more dynamic (frequently updated) would you visit the site more often?

What do you most like/most dislike about the design of the site (organization, color scheme, availability or lack of specific information..)?

How do you view the LCTA web site: primarily as a documentation of past trail endeavors, a guide to trails currently open for public use, a source for information about current events soon to take place, or a mechanism for allowing strategic information sharing about future trails plans?

Thanks for your thoughts. :-)

CR City Manager to Speak at LCTA Annual Meeting (Nov 13)

This is a reminder that the Linn County Trails Association is holding its Annual Meeting next Monday (Nov 13) at 7:00 p.m. at People’s Unitarian Church. The church is located at the corner of 6th Street and 3rd Avenue SE in Cedar Rapids. Jim Prosser, Cedar Rapids City Manager, will be our featured speaker. In addition, we will have a limited business agenda and an election of officers.

We would love to have a large group of trail supporters on hand. Jim is new to our community and we are pleased that he has agreed to address LCTA. I am certain there will be a Q & A opportunity and we will all benefit from Jim’s perspective on trails.
