Community leaders from around Knoxville and Marion County made the trip to Des Moines last week as they met with other RAGBRAI overnight communities. During the meeting, they discussed what the requirements are and got the chance to meet with other communities who have hosted overnight stays recently. Assistant City Manager Dylan Feik says there’s a lot of excitement from all the communities involved. He adds there are 15-20 separate committees in Knoxville alone meeting at any given time to continue with the planning process. Feik adds he’ll inform KNIA/KRLS of significant developments regarding the planning process. You can also check out the RAGBRAI page  at knoxvilleia.gov .
