We are looking forward to 2036. That’s what the From Cornerstone to Capstone (C2C) Plan is all about. Story County has built a solid foundation - that Cornerstone - with planning dating back to the 1950s. Now we are designing our blueprint - the Capstone - for how we grow and develop over the coming 20 years. The C2C Plan is a coordinated long range plan that is intended to be physical and policy-based. There is an online open house available on the C2C Plan website at

The last of the public open houses scheduled for February 2nd, has been postponed until February 22nd, from 6 - 7 pm at the Ames Public Library, 515 Douglas Avenue.

Your input will help us clearly paint what Story County will be now and for the generations to come. For more information on this process and to sign up for project updates please visit the C2C Plan website at
