The Public Review Draft

of the Downtown Zoning Code Update

will be available for review and download on

Friday, February 19.

What should Downtown Cedar Falls be like in the future? How should it grow and change? Are there places that should stay the same?

To answer these questions and more, the City Council adopted the Imagine Downtown Vision Plan in the fall of 2019.

The City initiated the visioning and zoning code update process to provide a framework for future growth and development. The goal of the Imagine Downtown Plan is to define that framework—building on the community aspirations, and incorporating several urban design and placemaking principles—within the existing Cedar Falls context; not to prescribe specific building designs. This community vision will also lay the foundation for updating the zoning and other development regulations for Downtown.

-- Executive Summary, Imagine Downtown Vision Plan


The Public Review Draft of the proposed new zoning will be presented at the:

Planning and Zoning Commission -- February 17 at 5:30 pm.
