"Meet the Gang"
IOWA CITY, Iowa (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- A community development group in Iowa City is looking for its next project to take up.
The James Gang is a community non-profit who take ideas and turn them into a reality. Today they held their annual "Meet the Gang" event to receive ideas from the public.
"What we want to do is, we want to create that physical agent or that physical responsibility or opportunity," board member, Ryan West said. "For someone to say, here's an idea I want to make happen, how do I make it happen? And we do that by giving people the opportunity to exist under out 5013 status."
Over the past 12 years, the group has helped to develop the Antelope Lending Library, the Iowa Youth Writing Project, the Mission Creek Music Festival, and a host of other ideas that began as endeavors.
