Cedar Falls Master Plan

Cedar Falls, Iowa


The master plan provides an organized framework for expansion, an economic development strategy and a plan for a pedestrian-oriented high-end technology center.

Confluence led a multi-disciplinary team to provide the City of Cedar Falls with a market study and master plan for the key property at the City’s southern gateway. The property included two 80-acre agricultural parcels flanking Hudson Road and Highway 20, a primary point of entry for the University of Northern Iowa. The design includes a city gateway feature, stormwater plaza, stormwater basins, open space and trails. Designed for low impact, our multi-faceted team looked at many factors including impact to and from adjacent land uses efficient routing of roadway corridors and utilities, stormwater management, greenway enhancements and streambank restoration.
