City of Dubuque Community Details

The city of Dubuque is a progressive, sustainable city with a strong diversified economy and expanding global connections that celebrates culture and heritage and has actively preserved their "Masterpiece on the Mississippi."

Dubuque citizens experience healthy living and active retirement through quality, livable neighborhoods and an abundance of fun things to do and they are engaged in the community, achieving goals through partnerships; and Dubuque City government is financially sound and providing services with citizens getting value for their tax dollars. This formula for success has positioned Dubuque to be among the top cities in the Midwest to raise a family, have a meaningful career, start or grow a business, and enjoy life! This fact was affirmed when Dubuque was named the 2010 “Best Small City to Raise a Family” in the nation by the Forbes.com.

The Port of Dubuque is home to the America’s River Project, an amazing project that transformed our once-neglected riverfront into a 90-acre campus of attractions that celebrate our connection to the Mississippi River.
