Mississippi River Corridor Land Use Plan & Design Principles

Quad Cities, Illinois/Iowa

Lakota prepared a Land Use Plan for the 26-mile Mississippi River corridor within the Quad Cities region. The firm also prepared Design Principles for the riverfront with the Bi-State Regional Commission, River Action Group, Quad Cities Arts Council and 13 towns, five cities, two counties and two states. The Guidelines address river access, landscaping, wayfinding/signage, architecture, open space, public art, street furniture and lighting. Lakota has continued to be involved in the implementation of the plan and subsequent updates.
