Main Street Iowa
Cedar Falls has the honor of being designated as a Main Street Community by the Main Street Iowa Program. The mission of the Main Street Iowa Program is to improve the social and economic well-being of Iowa's communities by assisting selected communities to capitalize on the unique identity, assets and character of their historic commercial district.
The Main Street Iowa program works with a select group of communities committed to exceptionally high standards for downtown economic development. As a Main Street America Coordinating Program, the over 50 communities in Iowa are connected to a network of 40 programs across the country representing over 1,200 communities.
Assistance from the Main Street Iowa team includes training workshops, architectural and design assistance, business assistance, and a number of other technical assistance opportunities.
