Imagine Mound View

Imagine Mound View, the Cedar Rapids neighborhood festival organized by Corridor Urbanism, drew a steady and significant crowd to a normally empty block of the northeast side Saturday afternoon. They found an array of food and craft vendors, political candidates, and representatives from non-profit and government agencies. Competing as we were against the annual Iowa-Iowa State football game (if that doesn't impress you, you're not from here), we showed the appetite here for good urban development that includes food options, bike trails and other recreational opportunities--if nothing else we learned that Cedar Rapids needs more skateboard facilities, stat--as well as just plan old street life.
