West Union Green Streetscape on Profiles Series

Posted: Mon, April 29, 2013

 
West Union's green pilot streetscape project and partnership with the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) will be featured on an educational television program, "Profiles Series" with host Larry King, on Monday, May 6, 2013 at 6:00 am on the Discovery Channel. The half-hour program will include other feature segments and commentary by host Larry King from the studio. A production team gathered footage in West Union on November 1, 2012. This included interviews with West Union City Administrator Robert Vagts, former West Union mayor Merlin Dunt, Business Owner Dick Woodard, and IEDA Community Development Division Administrator Tim Waddell.
 
The segment will focus on the streetscape's design and implementation, including the stormwater management and district geothermal system. It will highlight the local connections between downtown revitalization, sustainability, and economic development, in addition to the commitment needed to accomplish the project.
 
"Profiles Series" produces educational programming on a variety of important subjects and issues: Environmental, Health & Medical, Educational, Business and Agriculture. Its host, Emmy Award-winning Larry King, has been dubbed "the most remarkable talk-show host on TV ever" by TV Guide and "master of the mic" by "TIME" magazine.
