Cedar Falls council limits park protest periods

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Monday evening the Cedar Falls City Council revisited an issue members voted on two weeks ago.

This issue arose from the 'Occupy Cedar Valley' group camping in Gateway Park last fall

The council voted 4-2 to allow people to apply for a permit for an extended stay in a city park.

One of the concerns the council had was that hate groups may use city parks to stage negative or violent displays.

The council decided to vote again because a member had been absent during the first vote.
