A community’s comprehensive plan is an important document. It guides city government efforts but its most notable purpose is to help inform community initiatives and priorities.
“Imagine Dubuque 2037: A Call to Action” was adopted by the City Council on September 18, 2017, and is our community’s comprehensive plan. It was developed by the community through the active participation of over 6,000 residents who contributed over 12,500 ideas to make Dubuque a more viable, livable, and equitable community. These ideas created the content and recommendations contained in the plan.
