City shares vision at the Waterloo Convention Center at Sullivan Memorial Plaza

WATERLOO, IOWA (Excerpts from the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier) — Less than two weeks out from the election, Mayor Quentin Hart talked about the importance of good leadership, touted his 2030 Vision Plan and teased citywide broadband during his fifth State of the City address Thursday.

Hart’s speech, inside the still-being-renovated Waterloo Convention Center, included video testimonials from city directors on the progress in their various departments.

“I am proud to report the state of our city is strong, and our best days are still to come,” Hart told the socially distanced crowd inside the main exhibit hall.

In a short video, Planning and Development Director Noel Anderson talked about new development over the past year. Hart noted last year was one of “our highest permitting years” with $141.06 million in new valuation and 720 new jobs.

The Waterloo Convention Center is located at the Sullivan Memorial Plaza. The City is currently working with Vandewalle & Associates’ design division Eye Level Studio to reimagine, redesign, and install an engaging outdoor public space that invites visitors and veterans to celebrate Waterloo and honor its Sullivan family history of sacrifice and service.
