The City of Dubuque, IA, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Mississippi Valley Division met on December 19 to formalize an agreement for assistance in the preparation of a comprehensive waterfront master plan for the city.

The agreement was signed by Dubuque Mayor Roy D. Buol and USACE Rock Island District Engineer Colonel Steven Sattinger.

The Planning Assistance to States program was authorized in the Water Resources Development Act of 1974 and details a 50/50 cost-sharing agreement between cities and USACE to work on mutually beneficial projects.

According to an official announcement, the agreement between the City of Dubuque and the USACE will focus on the development of a comprehensive waterfront plan, projected to cost a total of $196,300.

The City and USACE would each be responsible for $98,150. The cost born by the City can be paid entirely or in part through in-kind contributions to the work of developing the plan.

The project scope is specific to Dubuque and is divided into three main tasks:

  • Identify beneficial use of dredged material opportunities in the Dubuque area;
  • Identify ecosystem restoration opportunities in the Dubuque area;
  • Identify recreational enhancement opportunities in the Dubuque area.
