Neighborhood Planning Process
More than 1,400 citizens participated in the Neighborhood Planning Process between January and May 2009. During the process of eight community meetings and workshops, participants developed ideas and provided feedback on reinvestment plans for 10 flood-damaged neighborhoods along the Cedar River. The Cedar Rapids City Council approved the final Neighborhood Reinvestment Plan on May 13, 2009 to guide redevelopment in the neighborhoods over the next 10 to 15 years. Click here to learn more.
Neighborhood Reinvestment Action Plans
The public brainstormed over 600 action items at the April 25, 2009 and May 5, 2009 Neighborhood Planning Process Meetings. Similar and related ideas were then grouped together to form the 158 specific action items. The action plans are divided into three reinvestment areas along the Cedar River - the North, Central and South Areas. In order to track and communicate additional flood recovery progress, the City has included Capital Improvement Projects and other City-led initiatives related to flood recovery.
