Cedar Valley River Experience Plan (8/31/22)
INRCOG, Grow Cedar Valley, and Deere Corporation recently partnered with Vandewalle & Associates to create the placemaking master plan "Cedar Valley River Experience Vision". Using the Cedar River as the link, the proposed plan will support the hospitality, cultural, and retail economic bases and help attract and retain workforce in the Cedar Valley. In addition, the impetus of the plan will be to maintain and improve the economies by increasing density of destinations, focusing on the two downtowns, underscoring recreational opportunities, and creating environmentally sustainable development along the river. You can find the plan here. For any questions or comments, please contact Isaiah Corbin.
