"Dream Green" Dubuque Trip

Dubuque is Iowa's oldest city. But it is one of the state's brightest examples of what's possible when city planning is inspired by active citizen and business participation, and guided by visionary leadership. The day we were there, the local newspaper headlines read: "City on its way to reducing greenhouse gases by 50%." Later that day, we learned that Dubuque was receiving the Governor's 2011 Environmental Excellence Award. Learn what Dubuque is doing right with its balanced and inclusive approach from Mayor Roy Buol and sustainability coordinator Cori Burbach.
