Dubuque's new comprehensive plan, "Imagine Dubuque 2037: A Call to Action," was adopted following a year of community engagement that gathered over 12,500 ideas from more than 6,000 residents and stakeholders. The plan serves as a policy guide for the community's physical, social, and economic development. Implementation of the plan recommendations will rely on community participation, partnerships, and collaboration with residents and organizations. This is a call to action! The goal is to create a more viable, livable, and equitable community.
It is hoped that you will heed this Call to Action. It is your responsibility to develop the action steps, create the strategies for success, and be inclusive in your efforts to make your community sustainable and resilient. These are your ideas and you have the opportunity to participate in moving them forward.
