The City of Dubuque is soliciting competitive sealed proposals from qualified and experienced professional consulting firms or teams to update the Unified Development Code which includes the zoning code, the subdivision ordinance, and the historic preservation ordinance.

This update is not intended to be a complete rewrite of the existing code. The City believes the current document provides a solid foundation; however, updates and enhancements are necessary to eliminate inconsistencies and incorporate zoning code best practices.

The City is seeking to complete the Unified Development Code Update by March 2026.
