The community has been rallying behind theFriends of Cedar Lake initiative since September of 2013. We’ve met with 50+ stakeholder groups including business owners, industry, neighborhood associations, charitable organizations and people just like you – people who care about the future of the lake.
Everyone we’ve engaged believes it’s the right thing to do to make the lake the asset it has the potential to be. We have support from city leaders. We have cooperation from Alliant Energy to transfer ownership. We have enthusiastic interest from the Iowa DNR to apply for the Lake Restoration Program. We have a master plan that can largely be funded from private contributions and grants.
It’s time to make Cedar Lake a destination that our community can be proud of.
