ENVIS10N 2010

Everywhere you look, exciting changes are taking place in Dubuque. From the beautiful renovation of the Carnegie-Stout Library to the Crescent Community Healthy Center, our community is quickly becoming an even better place to live, work and play.

This was precisely the goal of the ENVIS10N 2010 community visioning process facilitated by the Community Foundation and the Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce in 2005. Funded by the Dubuque Racing Association, this grassroots effort encouraged community members to gather together and brainstorm ideas for the next 10 great projects that would move Dubuque forward. ENVIS10N 2010 was an opportunity for all citizens to get involved and contribute to the future of their community.

From boardrooms to living rooms, in gatherings large and small, community members submitted more than 2,300 ideas. The selection committee then narrowed this list down to 100, from which citizens chose the top 30.

After professional research and negotiations among selection committee members, the top10 ideas were announced in January 2006.

ENVIS10N 2010 succeeded in giving our community much more than just 10 great ideas, however. The inclusive process engaged citizens and sparked excitement about what might be possible for our community. ENVIS10N 2010 was also the catalyst for successful endeavors like Every Child/Every Promise, the Mystique Community Ice Center and Project HOPE, and continues to infuse our community with expectations for a bright future.
