Happening Now
May 22 to May 29

Because of the results of the Housing Study, work of the Housing Task Force, and community feedback, the City of Manning has been working to try to find developers willing to build multiple homes in this area. One of them, Classic Builders of Iowa, will be in Manning on Wednesday, May 31st at 5:00 at the Timmerman Shelter House.
They will be speaking with people interested in building a new home this year to gauge if there is enough interest to do a development here.
If you are interested in building a new home - of any size - in Manning this year, you're welcome to attend.
For more information about Classic Builders, you can visit their webpage at http://classicbuildersiowa.com

Main Street Manning encourages each and every community member to "support the businesses we have."
In addition, with Main Street Iowa and an outside consulting firm, we have conducted extensive research to develop a list of “top prospects” for expansion or recruitment in downtown Manning.
Now we’re asking for your help to identify what might be the “best of the best” and to fine-tune our business development strategies.
The survey should only take about three minutes or less to complete.
