The Genus team was selected by the Loess Hills Alliance to complete a state mandated comprehensive planning effort for the seven county region of western Iowa. The first phase of the plan consisted of developing a common vision of the region by Alliance members. The second phase of the comprehensive plan reviewed existing planning documents, policies, and land use plans to develop recommendations for the designation of scenic areas, protection of native vegetation, public education, methods of preserving natural resources, and the promotion of tourism and related business and industry in the Loess Hills area.
