Properties approved for ROOTs are primarily located on infill lots within the core neighborhoods of Cedar Rapids. Properties will not be located within the 100 year flood plain nor in the City's designated Greenway or Construction Study Area. 

Units participating in ROOTs were identified through a competitive review process where proposals were scored based on factors such as affordability, architectural design, green building principles and developer experience.

Builders will be required to incorporate mandatory green building guidelines into each home in the program. More information regarding green building guidelines can be accessed below.
