Iowa City In Focus: Urban Lumber

Iowa City In Focus brings the people, places, and projects of Iowa City into clear view. This monthly video program aims to highlight topical events and subjects through in-depth storytelling. Here's what you'll find in this month's episode:

Urban Lumber
Urban lumber is produced from trees that are removed for reasons other than harvest of their lumber. These are the trees all around us - in our yards, parks, and right-of-ways. Urban lumber is plentiful, local, and a renewable resource with unique design characteristics.

CO2 Reclamation System
Big Grove Brewery was able to use a Climate Innovation Grant from the City to add new technology that captures and reuses CO2. Watch to learn how carbon dioxide created during the fermentation process can now be captured, cleaned, and reused as part of the brewing and canning process.

The Housing Fellowship
Creating and maintaining affordable housing in partnership with community organizations is a top priority of the City. That includes a relationship with the Housing Fellowship to create safe, permanent housing opportunities to help stabilize families and our community.
