The City of Dubuque would like to thank all those residents, stakeholders, and organizations that generously shared their time, experiences, and knowledge with Imagine Dubuque. The ideas and contributions of the Dubuque community make this Comprehensive Plan an actionable vision for a more viable, livable, and equitable community.


Welcome to Imagine Dubuque!

Imagine Dubuque is the virtual home of the City of Dubuque’s Comprehensive Plan. Imagine Dubuque, the new City of Dubuque Comprehensive Plan is the next step in creating a sustainable, resilient, inclusive and equitable legacy for generations to come. Built around the community’s economic prosperity, environmental integrity and social and cultural vibrancy, the Comprehensive Plan serves as a guide for the community’s physical, social and economic development. It is a key tool to developing policy, informing the city budget, and community initiatives. Imagine Dubuque is designed to further momentum to create a viable, livable, and equitable community. Dubuque residents, business owners, and stakeholders, you are the stewards of this plan.  It is our  mission to ensure this plan reflects and celebrates the collective “voice” of our community. This is a call to action!
