The updated zoning regulations are an important step in implementing the Imagine Downtown! Vision Plan, which was adopted by the Cedar Falls City Council in November 2019. The plan was the result of public workshops and events that took place in 2019, where community members were invited to share their feedback and ideas for the future of Downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. The adoption of new zoning regulations will encourage development that is consistent with the community’s vision. 

The draft will be available for public consideration on the website for approximately one month before the Planning and Zoning Commission holds formal public hearings. Public input is invited at any time during the public review period and during the public hearings. Public hearings at the City Council will follow the Planning and Zoning Commission’s review, with final adoption anticipated by summer 2021.
