Project Newsletter
To assist in answering resident questions, the City of Cedar Rapids has created a periodic e-newsletter and a page on the City's website where residents can access public documents, timelines, and frequently asked questions regarding Cargill's railyard project and the Valley Park pollinator area. You are receiving this email because of your interest in the project. 

Valley Park Update | August 26, 2022

You may see equipment at Valley Park as crews start grinding derecho and invasive species debris. This is in preparation for planting pollinator seed this fall. The wood chips generated will be stored on site and used to create walking trails through the pollinator habitat.

Please contact the Parks & Recreation Department with any questions regarding this project.
