Community Development

Czech Village/NewBo Area Action Plan

The City of Cedar Rapids is seeking public input on the Czech Village/New Bohemia Action Plan, a comprehensive look at the strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for this distinct area. The City is seeking feedback on everything from bike and pedestrian access, to how street aesthetics can be improved, to what kind of new development the public is interested in attracting.
Adopted Plan
The final plan was adopted by City Council at their December 17, 2019 meeting. An update summary and tables were added in March 2024.

About the Area Action Plan

The Czech Village/New Bohemia Action Plan follows similar planning initiatives already completed, including the College District Action Plan, Mt. Vernon Road Corridor Action Plan and the Northwest Neighborhood Action Plan. These plans take the concepts identified from the City’s comprehensive plan, EnvisionCR, and develop action steps and goals tailored to a specific geographic region.
