Livable Communities - Grand Avenue in Des Moines with AARP - Iowa

We're on site with Brad Anderson from AARP-Iowa and Layne Fergusen from Team Better Block as they and dozens of volunteers transform a block of Grand Avenue in the East Village of Des Moines. The goal is to show what can be done to encourage a redesign of auto-dominated roads and create a more livable community and a more vibrant commercial area. And, the economic development opportunities are astounding. You've heard Jason Roberts talk about Build a Better Block early this year. Here we dive deeper.  Listen in.

Doing Good with Their Tips

We often record our broadcast interviews from Grounds for Celebration in Windsor Heights. We love the atmosphere of a live setting. This week when we were in for a segment waitress Judy Babb asked me about being on the broadcast and asked what it was we covered. When I said it was about business she said, "Darn, we were hoping you might say something about our charity work". We were interested. Meet Judy who, with fellow employee Holly McIlroy, pick a day each month (July 16th this month) and donate 100% of their tips to a charity. This month it is Unbreakabull Bullies of Urbandale.
