CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (KWWL) - From a pandemic to a derecho, 2020 has shown us there are just some things that are unpredictable. That is why Cedar Falls city officials are putting together a resilience plan, believing it is important to be prepared.

Next week, the city is asking folks to get involved by participating in a series of online workshops that focus on six categories.


  • Ecology
  • Weather
  • Energy
  • Civic Services
  • Equity
  • Economy

Wanting to hear the community's concerns or suggestions, there are options for self-guided or interactive presentations. All as an effort to help the city better handle situations like a pandemic or natural disaster.

Knowing the city can't see everything, City Planner, Thomas Winetraut is stressing the importance of this workshop.

"If things don't affect us personally, we don't always know what's going on so we want to hear from the community on how certain things that impact them," Winetraut said.

Winetraut also said if neighbors participate, these workshops can be very helpful.

"If it affects one person it really affects us all so it's really important that the community provides us input," Winetraut said, "no question is too small and no answer is not considered."

The series will be through October 20th to the 29th, but the self-guided presentations will be available till November 3rd. All workshops will start at noon every day.
