The Story County Conservation Board on Tuesday revealed its plans to create a multi-use nature park within an unused area in the Iowa State University Research Park over the next several years.
The Tedesco Environmental Learning Corridor, which would be on the roughly 30 acres between Workiva's location and the Economic Core Development Facility inside the ISU Research Park, is projected to cost around $4 million over three years, County Conservation director Mike Cox said.
The proposed park would be named after conservation board member and former Ames Mayor Ted Tedesco, who backed the project from its inception. He said the park would emphasize the "four C's:" collaboration between ISU, local conservationists and other groups, cooperation, conservation and connectivity to the High Trestle Bridge Trail.
