WATERLOO — It's still up in the air whether Waterloo and Cedar Falls will vie for funding from an initial pool of $100 million of COVID-19 federal relief dollars to help finance 'transformational' attractions and improvements along and nearby the Cedar River.Officials with the two cities reportedly were dreaming big when it came time earlier this year to consider a potentially lucrative opportunity, a Destination Iowa joint application. They had been working with Isaiah Corbin, community planner with the Iowa Northland Regional Council of Governments, and Cary Darrah, CEO and president of Grow Cedar Valley.
