12 Sustainability Principles

The Sustainable Dubuque Task Force identified 11 Principles as part of their community plan in 2008. In 2013, a 12th principle, Community Health & Safety, was added to the Sustainable Dubuque framework. These principles are part of our community values that citizens want to preserve and leave for future generations. These 12 Principles are organized according to our  part sustainability model.
