Dubuque’s True North Corp. is a 501c(3) non-profit organization working toward transformation in the Washington and North End neighborhoods.
Dubuque's True North focuses on three priorities:
Priority 1: Removal of blight and creation of affordable workforce housing.
Priority 2: Identification and pursuit of the redevelopment, reuse and repurposing of commercial and/or industrial assets with the greatest opportunity for a “transformative” effect.
Priority 3: Pursue infrastructure improvements capable of creating the physical, financial and cultural environment necessary to enable new businesses to develop, and existing businesses to reinvest in the north side corridors.
We employ data to drive decision-making and understand impact. Since 2017, we've worked with Loras College to complete two annual Community Perceptions Surveys. The survey tracks how those living in Dubuque perceive the challenges, safety, and quality of life in both their own neighborhood and others in the city.
