Cedar Falls Mulls 200-lot Housing Proposal

Sep 17, 2019


September 17, 2019 (Cedar Falls, Iowa) — A residential housing development including more than 200 lots is being proposed near the future site of the new Cedar Falls High School.

ISG Engineering asked the City Council on Monday night to rezone 119 acres near Union Road and Waterbury Drive for the new West Fork Crossing development.

The initial construction is expected to include 30 lots connected to Union Road, said Jonathon Kline, ISG graduate engineer.

The council unanimously approved rezoning the land — near the Robinson Dresser Sports Complex — for residential use during a public hearing, and amended the land use map to allow for medium- to low-density residential development in the area.

The development would be located northwest of the proposed site of Cedar Falls’ new high school. A referendum on the $69.9 million high school was approved in June with more than 65% of voters favoring the project.

Bob Manning, executive officer of the Cedar Valley Home Builders Association, “strongly endorsed” the development.

“We’re very excited to have this new development,” Manning said. “Growth is always the item we like to see in any community. Schools are magnets for housing, and so this is an excellent location for future housing needs in Cedar Falls.”
