The community is invited to an Open House at the newly renovated Cedar Falls City Hall (220 Clay Street) on May 15, 2023, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Guests can take a guided tour of the facility and City staff will be available to answer any questions the public may have about the remodel. The event will also include a ribbon-cutting celebration from Grow Cedar Valley at 4:15 p.m.
"We are excited to share how City Hall has been improved to better serve our community," said Cedar Falls Communications Specialist Amanda Huisman. "As Public Safety moved to South Main Street in 2019, much of the lower area of the building was vacant. The remodel helped utilize that existing space by renovating it for administrative use and the lower level now offers a centralized service window for all citizen needs such as permits, planning, engineering, and licensing."
Additional improvements to the building also included a new HVAC system, the expansion of public areas such as the foyer and conference room now located outside of the updated council chambers, and enhanced accessibility including accessible bathrooms and ramp to the City Council dais.
"As we welcome staff and the public back to City Hall, we look forward to how these updates increase efficiency, promote accessibility, and make it easier to work together," said Huisman.
