The Downtown Design Project, hosted by the Webster City Area Chamber of Commerce, has moved to the next stage. The 23 students involved are wrapping up their work and will be giving a presentation to the stores involved and any member of the community who wishes to attend.
Nov. 13 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the College of Design in room 130 each student will give a five to seven minute presentation. They will show the retail space, outlining existing conditions, detailing issues and showing the redesigns. Each presentation is about 12 slides. There will be a few minutes for questions, and then they go onto the next student. The students who are not able to attend will have pre-recorded their presentations.
The participating merchants are Osweiler's, Webster City Church of Christ, Critter Nation, 2nd Street Emporium, Grid Iron Family Grill and Sports Lounge, Heart 'n Home, Home Appliance and Television, Ron's Computers, ReSale by FRAS, InTANDEM Workspace, L.T. Redemption, Moriarty Dental Group, PLC, North Central Turf, R Company Boutique, Shanti Wellness Day Spa, Stony Creek Landscapes, The Produce Station Studios and Webster City Area Chamber of Commerce.

Steve Struchen of Home Appliance and Television said "I'm very excited to see what they come up with for the design of the back of my building. In addition to the design I need to work on water flow off of a steel roof and I'm curious to see how they work that into the design. Then the front of Ron's Computers is aged and we are looking forward to the new design our student comes up with."
