LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE BRINGS NEW AMENITIES TO TRAILSIDE DOG PARK

On Tuesday, June 8, the Waukee Leadership Institute (WLI) Class of 2021 cut the ribbon to celebrate the installation of a new shade structure and bench at Trailside Dog Park. The group raised more than $13,000 for the new amenities. Part of the contributions came by way of the class selling bones that are now placed along the fence in the dog park. These bones show sponsor company names, current pets and some pets that have passed. “The great thing about the bone idea is that the Parks & Rec Department can continue to offer these and place them around the park,” said WLI Class Member and Waukee City Council Member Chris Crone. “Any funds raised then can help with future improvements.” Crone said the class even has funds remaining, which they plan to donate to a local nonprofit organization.

Parks & Rec staff members provided the labor for the project. They put the bones up on the fencing, poured the concrete pad, and installed the shade structure and the bench. “The City of Waukee and the Waukee Parks & Recreation Department are extremely grateful for the efforts of this Waukee Leadership Class,” said Waukee Assistant Parks & Recreation Director Josh VandeKamp.

The Waukee Leadership Institute develops leaders in Waukee, with an emphasis on community involvement. This year’s class includes: Echo Boland, Chris Crone, Jamie Cutler, Logan Galloway, Heather Garcia, Shannon Gerand, Tony Greco, Bryan Griffith, Adam Infante, Mackenzie Kaplan, Yatin Kothari, Sue Kyser, Laura Loux, Matt Reeves, Ben Sinclair, Brett Stefani and Abid Talic.

WAUKEE RULES FOR PLACING YARD SIGNS

Events such as garage sales, open houses, etc. are picking up. Yard signs are a great way to share messages about these events; however, the City encourages residents to follow these basic rules to ensure signs are legally placed in proper locations. • Signs must be placed on private property, not within the right-of-way. The right-of-way is the area between the sidewalk and the curb. • Signs placed on a corner lot cannot block the vision triangle of the street. • Event signs must be removed within 24 hours of the end of the respective event(s). As time allows, City staff will remove signs from the public right-of-way if observed or if they are reported. Signs are removed without regard to content. City staff will not remove signs from private property unless the sign is prohibited by another piece of the sign ordinance. When a sign is placed in the vision triangle, staff will contact the resident and grant a reasonable amount of time to move the sign to an appropriate location. For questions about sign location, call the Waukee Development Services Department at 515-978-9533.

Grote, based in Waukee, is married with one child, and is active in many Waukee organizations and boards.

MAPPING IT ALL OUT

When was the last time you unfolded the trusty Rand McNally map and used it to determine how to get from Point A to Point B while in your vehicle? Most of us now rely on the GPS maps installed on our phones or in our vehicles. They are quicker, easier and, best of all, we don’t have to figure out how to fold them back together. Meanwhile, aside from driving, maps can still be handy. Like when you are at an event or conference and need something that shows everywhere you need to be. Or when you are shopping in an area with multiple locations and want to plan your route. And especially when you are on a ski slope and need to make sure you don’t end up on a black diamond when you were expecting a green. Not too many years ago, my friend Greg suggested that we print “one of those spiral-bound book of maps.” In the midst of his 7-minute explanation of what it could be, I finally interrupted him and said, “You mean an atlas?” His response was like one of those Gilda Radner

“nevermind” looks. Meanwhile, Steve Peglow, an incredible local artist we work with, found a niche with his unique form of community and development maps. And I learned firsthand how residents at Lake Panorama appreciate their wall maps to get a better grasp of the local geography. Just a few years ago, we were contacted by a chamber of commerce to create a printed community shopping map. We published it, and within weeks they were all gone. They wanted more — and quickly. This printed map was so popular that we decided to do some in other areas, too. Maybe my friend Greg was onto something, or maybe he was just on something. Either way, I am going to hang on to the trusty Rand McNally in my glove box — just in case. Enjoy mapping out your week, and, as always, thanks for reading.

DMWW ASKING CUSTOMERS TO REDUCE LAWN WATERING BY 25 PERCENT

Des Moines Water Works has implemented Stage 1 of its Water Shortage Plan because of droughtinduced low river levels and record-breaking customer demand for water. Waukee is a Des Moines Water Works-served community. These two factors created a 90 percent demand on DMWW’s production capacity, which is the trigger for initiating the Stage 1. On Friday, June 11, Des Moines Water Works delivered almost 90 million gallons of water to its 500,000 customers. Much of the increase in water demand in the summer is a result of turf irrigation. Customers are asked to reduce their lawn watering by 25 percent. Des Moines Water works urges all customers to follow the irrigation schedule, which includes no turf irrigation on Mondays and to limit all other water usage wherever possible.
