MANNING, Iowa (KTIV) - Manning, Iowa is a town of right around 1,500 people. However, the small town is currently immersed in a number of big projects, including a $700,000 renovation of the buildings on Main Street, a new multimillion dollar hospital and the construction of a new fire station.
Manning's branch of Main Street Iowa, a federal program designed to improve the social and economic well-being to Iowa communities, is behind the improvements.
The projects are all part of Manning's long-term growth plan.
"A lot of towns our size are struggling, and in some cases, dying. Manning has put in great efforts forward in ensuring that we have a very viable future, economic future. And I would say, so far, that we've been very successful at that."
The renovations on Main Street and the hospital are expected to be finished this spring.
The fire station is currently in the fundraising stage.
