The Dubuque Regional Airport Master Plan has been initiated by the City of Dubuque to properly plan for the timely development of the airport to ensure its continued viability from a functional, social, and environmental perspective. The ultimate goal of the study is to provide systematic guidelines for the airport’s overall maintenance, development, and operation.

The master plan is intended to be a proactive document which identifies and then plans for future facility needs well in advance of the actual need for the facilities.  This is done to ensure that airport management can coordinate project approvals, design, financing, and construction to avoid experiencing detrimental effects due to inadequate facilities.

Draft chapters of the master plan will be presented to and reviewed by a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) that is comprised of various airport stakeholders, including representatives from the City of Dubuque, airport businesses, tenants, and area economic development interests.  Three public information workshops are planned at strategic points in the process to encourage citizens to learn more about the plans for the airport.

Please download and review the draft materials as they become available in the Documents section of this website. If you have comments or questions regarding the Master Plan materials, please feel free to submit them to the planning team here. Comments received will be given due consideration during the preparation of the Master Plan.
