In 2009 the City commissioned the UNI Center for Social and Behavioral Research to conduct a citizen satisfaction survey and compare the findings with the results of the survey conducted in 2004. Satisfaction increased, particularly with the much improved swimming facilities at The Falls aquatic center. Improvements in the College Hill district and recycling options resulted in an increase in satisfaction with Economic Development and Public Works ratings. The two highest rated conditions in Cedar Falls are the quality of life and ready access to quality housing. To read the survey, please select the link below.
