CEDAR RAPIDS WANTS TO WIN By Ron Corbett

Kelly Hayworth introduced Cedar Rapids Mayor Ron Corbett as our speaker. Mayor Corbett issued greetings from the north end of the Creative Corridor, and then talked about regionalism. He said our area can use regionalism most effectively in marketing and in workforce development. Despite his enthusiasm for regionalism, Corbett said he wants Cedar Rapids to win, even when competing against others in the Corridor. He likened it to the Big Ten. We want the conference to do well, but we want the Hawkeyes to beat all other Big Ten teams. To be competitive, he said Cedar Rapids has invested in post-flood public sector projects, a move that has given the private sector the confidence to now invest in its own expansion projects. That has meant projects by companies like General Mills, Diamond V Mills, PMX and DuPont that bring jobs to the area. He said the city also is pursuing commercial expansion, because the resulting sales tax boost can help with flood-control projects and infrastructure.

During the question and answer portion, he was asked about Cedar Rapids’ plans for a casino (they plan to appeal to the Legislature to allow a class of licenses for smoke-free establishments), and traffic cameras (it is the city using the same kind of technology that has allowed business to stay competitive).
