The City of Cedar Falls conducted a Downtown Parking Study in February 2019. You can view the final report of the Downtown Parking Study here. The report included short-term, mid-term, and long-term recommendations. The short-term recommendations being implemented in the summer of 2019 include:
- Allowing overnight parking on streets next to Main Street (for example, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Streets on either side of Main Street)
- Adding on-street parking in areas like State Street south of 2nd Street and angled parking on 2nd Street north of Overman Park
- Providing free on-street parking choices of 2, 3, and 24 hours, and 15 minute drop-off/pick-up zones throughout downtown
