CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) People and businesses in North Cedar are asked to come together for a stronger neighborhood voice.

"Shortly after the flood, the mayor started the Northern Cedar Falls Visioning Association and members of that committee came up with challenges, one of those challenges was to form a neighborhood association," said Tom Hagarty.

Hagarty is the Cedar Falls City Council representative for district one-- which includes North Cedar. He doesn't live in the neighborhood, but hopes to offer help and input in getting the North Cedar Association underway.

"Hopefully economic wish and input, support when new businesses decide to locate in North Cedar and lobbying for neighborhood police association," said Hagarty.

Bill Morse lives on Kennedy street in North Cedar. He said the people of North Cedar need to bind together to be heard.

"We would like to have some feedback to the council and from the council from rank and file," said Morse.

Morse said the North Cedar Association will be modeled after other successful assocations in Cedar Falls including College Hill and Overman Park.

"I think we're due an organization here after we watched some of the other regional organizations with in the city work. I think we need to have one here so we can be heard also," said Morse.
