Charles City Piloting New Program For Rural Communities

Charles City, Iowa – Charles City to be the next livable community according to AARP.  

The city’s been selected for the rural outreach program.

Mark Wix is the Charles City Chamber Director.


AARP defines a livable community as a safe and secure place to live and have affordable housing and transportation options for seniors.  AARP selected Charles City based on many factors but Wix says it’s because the city is home to more than 600.


No officials programs have been put into action yet.  AARP is working with civic leaders to host a community forum and discussion on Tuesday October 23rd at 1 in the Charles City Public Library.

He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them.
