RIO Iowa Project





The Rebuild Iowa Office closed on June 23, 2011. The office was established to coordinate the state-wide recovery effort after the historic floods, tornadoes and severe weather of 2008.

In the wake of Rebuild Iowa Office's closing, RIO Iowa is a project that aims to represent past, present, and future planning ideals that are central to the State of Iowa. Our objective is to contribute to the practice of planning by making tools and other resources available that will effectively enhance planning efforts at the regional and local levels.
