Cedar Falls Bike Network Plan

The Bike Network Plan takes into consideration the input gathered from the public outreach questionnaire and community events that took place in the fall of 2021 which provided recommendations on how the biking system in Cedar Falls can be improved to allow for increased safety and access to streets, trails, and businesses. The main goal of the plan is to improve the daily commuting utility of the bike network. The Cedar Falls City Council adopted the plan on May 16, 2022.
