WELCOME

GREETINGS As Mayor, and on behalf of the 58,000 residents of Dubuque, I thank you for your interest in Iowa’s first city … our “Masterpiece on the Mississippi!” Dubuque is blessed with a hardworking, skilled and educated workforce, supported by numerous quality private and public institutions of higher learning. We promote citizen involvement and community engagement in developing our City’s vision and priorities which is why Dubuque has been recognized among the top cities in the Midwest to raise a family, have a meaningful career, start or grow a business, and enjoy life! Dubuque is considered the “birthplace of Iowa” and features a rich history, interesting architecture, and abundant natural beauty. In addition to excellent accommodations and conference settings, Dubuque features the Port of Dubuque’s breathtaking riverwalk along the Mississippi, award-winning restaurants, charming shops, art and river history museums, elegant turn-of-the-century homes, and many other attractions. Since 2006, Dubuque has become a leader in the practical application of sustainability principles represented in the citizen-developed, City Counciladopted, and community-supported initiative known as “Sustainable Dubuque.” This focus offers a balanced approach to life quality in the areas of economic prosperity, environmental integrity, and social/cultural vibrancy (see www.sustainabledubuque.org). “Smarter Sustainable Dubuque,” our collaboration with IBM Research to become IBM’s first “smart city” in North America, has allowed us to share our story around the nation and the world. In Spring 2015, Dubuque was awarded a 4-STAR Community Rating for national excellence in sustainability, becoming just the third Iowa community and the 25th in the nation to achieve certification under the national STAR Community Rating System (STAR). In late 2014, the White House named Dubuque one of 16 Climate Action Champions, a diverse group of communities defining the frontier of ambitious climate action whose approaches can serve as a model for other communities to follow. The Intelligent Community Forum named Dubuque as one of just five U.S. cities named the world’s “Smart21 Communities” of 2015. Other important recognitions stemming from our public/private partnerships have resulted in the coveted Outstanding Tourism Community of the Year award from the State of Iowa and the 2013 All-America City designation by the National Civic League, the third time in six years! Our community was honored to be named one of the 2013 10 Great Places to Live by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People five times by the America’s Promise Alliance. In 2010, Forbes recognized Dubuque as the Best Small City to Raise a Family, and in 2008 the U.S. Conference of Mayors selected Dubuque as the Most Livable Small City in the nation!

ALONG THE RIVER lead mining, settlers brought new business, such as button making, boat construction and millworking, along the river. At the turn of the century, Dubuque's Millwork District was booming. Logs that had been transported down the Mississippi River were transformed by master craftsman at dozens of companies. Today, these historic warehouses have been given new life with an expansive renovation project.

This delicious Arabica coffee craft roasted right here in Dubuque, IA was named after the quiet neighborhood where the owners grew up. With the street no longer there, they wanted to pay tribute to their childhood and keep their memories alive by naming this family run business – Verena Street Coffee.

These delectable gremlins are hand crafted at Betty Jane Candies, a family run business since 1938. Their mouthwatering chocolates were awarded People Magazine’s ‘Pick for Top Culinary Gift in Iowa’ and were also featured in the Academy Award gift baskets in 2014 and the Grammy Award gift bags for 2017. Savor the flavor of this best-selling treat that is known around the world.
