Corridor Business Journal: Cedar Rapids city leaders on Monday offered a comprehensive update on the city's flood protection system, including a look at new components set to come online in 2019 and details on the city's bonding strategy. Of interest to business leaders will be the opening of the Steve Emerson-led Ellis Landings development, which incorporates flood protection, a new levy in Czech Village that will help protect all of the businesses in the Czech Village/NewBo area, and a $20 million floodwall at Quaker Oats, Flood Manager Rob Davis said.
