Welcome to our expanded Clear Creek Amana Community Guide

W

elcome to our expanded Clear Creek Amana Community Guide. For the past several years, Marengo Publishing Corporation and NEWSpapers of Iowa County have brought you the Amana Colonies Guide, a look at the annual goings on in the Amana Colonies and surrounding area. However, our newspaper, the Pioneer-Republican, has frequently covered events in other areas of the Clear Creek Amana School District, including North Liberty, Oxford and Tiffin. We are now happy to feature information about those towns, in addition to the Amana Colonies, in our expanded guide. The Clear Creek Amana School

District spans eastern Iowa and western Johnson counties, and incorporates the Amanas, Oxford and Tiffin, as well as a good chunk of North Liberty. Populations range from a few hundred in the Amanas to more than 13,000 in North Liberty. Please take a look at our community business directory, which features numerous businesses in the area, as well as brief descriptions of each town, historical sites in Amana and the many festivals that take place each year. All photos used in this guide, including background shots, are scenes from the Clear Creek Amana area. This guide is intended to be an accurate representation of the Clear Creek Amana as of its publication in

the fall of 2012. All information provided has been independently verified and is correct, to the best of our knowledge. However, should you find a mistake, please let us know so we can correct it for our next guide. As this is our first attempt at an expanded community guide, it is also possible we may have missed something. We welcome corrections, additions and suggestions for our next guide by calling (319) 642-5506 or emailing brathjen@dmreg.com. Thank you for taking this opportunity to read our Clear Creek Amana Community Guide, and please take time to explore this wonderful area! − Brian Rathjen editor, Pioneer-Republcian

Government agencies T

he seven villages of Amana, East Amana, High Amana, Homestead, Middle Amana, South Amana and West Amana and the 26,000 acres that surround the villages make up the Amana Colonies. The Colonies are an unincorporated area, simply meaning there is no formalized city government. The Iowa County Board of Supervisors provides governance over the streets and all non-state roads. In addition, Iowa County provides funding for various local entities through the county hotel-motel tax fund. Iowa County may also provide assistance and funding on a per project basis. All incorporated cities (i.e. Williamsburg, Marengo, etc.) have a state allocated road fund; a funding formula established by the state on a per capita basis that provides funds for maintenance of the cities’ roads. The Amana Colonies Road Fund is funded in the same manner, using the State of Iowa formula, administered by the Iowa County Board of Supervisors. The Amana Colonies are the only unincorporated area to receive such funding. The Iowa County Board of Supervisors can be reached at (319) 642-3041 or by mail at P.O. Box 126, Marengo, IA 52301. Supervisor meetings are held weekly Friday mornings at 9 a.m. in the Iowa County Courthouse, Marengo.

LAND USAGE The approximate 26,000 acres that surround the Amana Colonies are privately owned by Amana Society Inc., and farmed by Amana Farms, Inc., which operates the largest contiguous farm in the state of Iowa, as well as maintaining one of the largest cow/ calf operations in the state. Additionally, Iowa’s largest privately owned forest can be found in the Amana Colonies. Trespass permits for recreational use are available for Amana Colonies residents and Amana Society stockholders through a mail-in application process. Applications may be picked up at the Amana Society main office. Direct questions to the Amana Conservation Committee administrator at (319) 622-4040.

ACLUD In 1986, the authority to regulate the land of the colonies was formalized with the state legislative provision for a Land Use District followed by the establishment by election of the Amana Colonies Land Use District (ACLUD). The purpose of the district is to conserve the distinctive historical and cultural character of the area particularly in its land use and acquisition of land. The district concerns itself primarily in the areas of commercial and industrial development, residential development and in preservation of agricultural land and historic properties. Within that context, ACLUD also reviews the role of transportation, environmental controls, utilities and community facilities as they contribute to the protection and improvement of the district. In practice, all construction and demolition in the district require a zoning permit from the ACLUD Board of Trustees with a further review of historic district properties by the Historic Preservation Commission. The Amana Colonies Land Use District Board of Trustees meets on the first Monday of the month at the ACLUD office, 4304 220th Trail., Amana. Additional information may be obtained by contacting the ACLUD office, (319) 622-3840 or by e-mail at aclud@ southslope.net.

Clear Creek Amana Community Guide

2012

Clear Creek Amana Community Schools The Clear Creek Amana School District – one of the fastest growing in Iowa – was formed in 1995, the result of a merger of the former Clear Creek and Amana school districts. Clear Creek, based in Tiffin, was itself created in the early 1960s, while Amana School dated to 1935. District offices are located in Oxford, with schools in Amana, Oxford and North Liberty. The CCA District, which spans more than 300 square miles in eastern Iowa and western Johnson counties, encompasses the cities of Tiffin, Oxford and the seven villages of the Amana Colonies; in addition, portions of Coralville and North Liberty are also inside the district. CCA residents are served by a sevenmember board; four members represent geographic areas, while three are elected at-large. The current CCA High School opened in the fall of 2009. The school offers a wide variety of academic programs for students, providing a strong foundation for post-secondary education. CCA sports teams, known as the Clippers, have had a long history of excellence at both the conference and state levels. The school holds the state record for most trips to the state softball tournament, with 33 trips to the Fort Dodge-based tourney since 1972, including nine state titles. The school is also known for its outstanding marching band units.

Leading the CCA district ... Adminstrative office • Superintendent: Dr. Denise Schares • Superintendent’s secretary: Carol Hopp • Board secretary: Lori Robertson • Business office secretaries: Sara Gaeta, Mary Moser and Melissa Potter.
