Rock Island and Augustana College |Upper Mississippi Center partner for Longview Park

The City of Rock Island is partnering with Augustana College to develop a future revitalization plan for the park.

Urban planning students from Augustana College will host a community meeting as part of a semester-long community engagement project to develop a master plan for Rock Island’s Longview Park.
“Community engagement projects like this are a great opportunity for students to apply the knowledge and skills they learn about in the classroom and to meaningfully contribute to the community they are a part of at Augustana College,” Strunk said. 
Swahili, Kirundi and Karen interpretation will be provided at the community meeting. Rock Island residents may also complete an online survey about usage of the park HERE.
