Imagine Downtown! Vision Plan Presentation and Open House

Our Cedar Falls meeting slide Sept 25 2019

An open house will be held on September 25, beginning at 6:30 PM, in the Council Chambers at City Hall in Cedar Falls to present the public review draft of the Imagine Downtown! Vision Plan. A Q&A and open house will follow the presentation. All members of the public are welcome to attend to hear and view what is included in the draft. There will be opportunities to provide feedback at the open house and on the project webpage over the next several weeks, followed by public hearings at upcoming Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council meetings.

The Imagine Downtown! Vision Plan is based on the extensive public input gathered over the last six months, including the Public Kick-Off events, numerous focus group discussions and interviews with community stakeholders, and the week-long Community Design Charrette the City held this past June.

The plan will establish a general framework for public policy decisions and investment, in tandem with clear aspirations for the scale and character of future development in the downtown area.

“Throughout this process, the goal has been working together with the community to create a vision plan for the future of the downtown area,” said Karen Howard, Planning & Community Services Manager for Cedar Falls.  “We are excited about the progress we’ve made and are looking forward to receiving additional feedback.”

Public hearings will also be held at the Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council meetings in October and November prior to final adoption of the Vision Plan. Learn more about the Imagine Downtown! Vision Plan at
