The Signs are Everywhere.
The Signs are Everywhere. From blocks of housing rebuilt painstakingly by volunteers and residents, to the new U.S. Courthouse flanking the river, to a state of the art convention center and new hotel, bookending our vibrant downtown with the New Bohemia Main Street District - this is a time of hope and optimism for our community. With more than 3/4 of a billion dollars invested in our community, the Signs of Progress are all around us.
At the five year mark, this is the time to look forward. This is not only a time to see how much is yet to be done - but also to pursue that vision of a vibrant and urban hometown. One we’re all proud to call home.

NewBo City Market
Status: Completed and Open to Public
Address: 1100 3rd Ave SE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa
NewBo City Market opened in October of 2012 and has proven to be a hub of activity for the New Bohemia district and the city at large. With a focus on entrepreneurship, the market is host to numerous year-round vendors, a culinary education facility in partnership with Kirkwood Community College and host to “temporary” vendors in the flexible space and seasonal vendors in the outdoor stalls. The outdoor space was designed with the community in mind and is the perfect location for many family friendly educational and entertainment opportunities.
