If these bus tours aren’t on your radar yet, they should be. There’s no better way to learn about our community and the issues it faces than to share a 2-hour bus ride with the people who have their fingers on its pulse.
This bus tour was significantly different than the previous bus tour I participated in. This was the first tour completely outside of Des Moines city limits, but still within Polk County. Most of their bus tours in the past have highlighted issues affecting affordable housing in Des Moines’ urban core. Their goal with this tour was to demonstrate that affordable housing is an issue that affects all communities.
