GREAT START: Three "Great
Places" projects are off and running after Gov. Tom Vilsack signed agreements
last week with Clinton, Coon Rapids and Sioux City. Those three communities
were chosen as pilot projects for the new state program that brings together
resources of state government to aid local projects designed to make Iowa
communities a great place to live, work and raise a family. Many other
projects wait in the wings, hoping for success of these first three.
