Jackson County partnering with University of Iowa students to attract young families to small communities

BELLEVUE, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Jackson County is looking to attract more young families to its communities. 

The county has teamed up with University of Iowa graduate students to discover what young people look for in a city.

In Bellevue, Kelsey and Geoffrey Kaiser are examples of a young couple who moved to the town from a big city.

Geoffrey Kaiser is the principal at Marquette, and Kelsey Kaiser works at the local church.

Their offices are just across the street from each other, and their house just down the street.
