The City of Cedar Falls will be hosting an online Design Charrette Week for the Imagine College Hill! visioning project beginning October 3, 2020.
The project invites the public to help plan for the future of the College Hill area by offering their suggestions, ideas, and feedback on topics including walkability and the size, scale, and character of new developments.
Imagine College Hill! originally kicked off this past January with a public workshop and stakeholder focus group sessions. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the visioning activities were temporarily delayed. With the return of students to the University of Northern Iowa and community interest in the project, the City will now move forward with a virtual Design Charrette from October 3 – October 8.
The public is encouraged to participate and share feedback during these upcoming Charrette Week activities (meeting access information will be posted on www.ourcedarfalls.com when the event nears):
- Community Virtual Workshop: October 3, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
- Open Design Studio Q&A – Virtually drop by to ask the design team questions about the daily studio work: October 5, 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.; October 7, noon – 1:00 p.m.
