The City of Ames Planning and Housing, Public Works, and Fire Departments are hosting a public open house and meeting for residents to learn more about potential City projects that are planned or being considered in the College Creek/Old Ames Middle School neighborhood (generally defined as south of Lincoln Way, from Hyland Avenue to Beedle Drive).
The event will begin at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 23, with an open house at the Ames Middle School, 3915 Mortenson Road. A short, 10-minute overview of the three projects will be held at 6 p.m.
