Washington Neighborhood Seeks Input on
Improvements to Central Avenue
Jill Connors, City of Dubuque Economic Development Director
Dubuque's Washington Neighborhood, in partnership with the City of Dubuque and Dubuque Main Street, is developing an overall vision and master plan for Central Avenue. Together, with assistance from RDG Planning & Design and WHKS, they have evaluated opportunities to create a more pedestrian-friendly street, improve safety, and create a future vision to serve as the creative corridor for the Washington Neighborhood and the city of Dubuque.
Last September, the public participated in a series of input sessions to provide feedback on the proposed enhancements and amenities. This input has been incorporated into the vision for Central Avenue and the public is encouraged to come and review the proposed plan during the "Spring Fling on Central."
The event will be held on Tuesday, April 2, at 1101 Central Avenue (the former Colts Building) from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Free food will be provided from El Paisano for the first 150 participants.
Business and property owners on Central Avenue (from 11th street to 22nd street) are invited to attend a business roundtable discussion also on Tuesday, April 2, but from 1:00-2:30 p.m. at 1732 Central Avenue. Please RSVP for the business roundtable by calling 563.587.9244.
