A public meeting is set for tonight - Monday, July 25, from 6-8 p.m.- at the Reinig-Toledo Civic Center, 1007 Prospect Dr. hosted by Matrix Design Group in what is expected to be the first of a series of meetings in their effort to develop a plan for the reuse of the closed Iowa Juvenile Home - State Training School for Girls campus in Toledo. Comments from the public are being sought. Matrix Design Group was hired by the Iowa Development Authority to come up with plans for reuse of closed state facilities in Toledo, Mt. Pleasant and Clarinda and to produce a plan which will generally address any future closing of state institutitons.a The IJH-Training Sool was ordered closed on Jan. 15, 2014, by Gov. Terry Branstad and Charles Palmer, director of the Iowa Department of Human Services. The closing left Iowa without a central state facility for children adjudged in need of assistance and juvenile delinquent girls. The 27-acre campus in Toledo has sat idle since. Mental health facilities in Mt. Pleasant and Clarinda were closed in 2015.
