People Gather for "EnvisionCR" Input Session
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - People gathered again Monday to tell city leaders what they want for the future of Cedar Rapids. It's all part of the "EnvisionCR" plan, which will help shape the community over the next two decades.
Monday's session was a part of a bigger public input phase that ends Thursday. People could also give additional feedback on suggestions made during a kick-off meeting last month. One city official said he hoped to hear many honest comments.
"We're not looking for sugar coating of responses. We want people to say what they like, what they don't like so we can use that information to make a plan and help city council make decisions," Adam Lindenlaub, a planner with the city's Community Development Department said.
Through Thursday, April 30th, there will be a session from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. every night. Those sessions will meet at CSPS Hall in the NewBo district.
