Dubuque commission recommends $68.5M plan for civic center

Posted: Updated:

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - An advisory commission in Dubuque has recommended a $68.5 million construction plan for a local multi-purpose facility.

The Telegraph Herald reports that members of Dubuque's Civic Center Advisory Commission recommended the plan for the Five Flags Center on Monday. The plan includes renovating the center's theater, expanding the facility and building a new 6,000-seat arena.

A consulting firm presented a report last month with multiple options for addressing the center's future. Commission members unanimously voted to recommend the fourth idea presented, which was one of two that called for expanding the facility.

Commission chairwoman McKenzie Hill says public feedback indicated that the option chosen was the most popular among Dubuque residents.

The City Council will consider the recommendation on July 2.
