Guttenberg Riverfront Development Project

Guttenberg Marina

NE IA RC&D is assisting the City of Guttenberg with development of a downtown riverfront marina. The project is maximizing natural resource based economic development without destroying sensitive resources in the Mississippi River, Mississippi River bottomland hardwood wetlands, and small coldwater tributaries to the river. NE IA RC&D has helped the community obtain and leverage millions of dollars in funding for the project, including funding for feasibility and environmental impact studies, construction, education and wetland mitigation. This project is helping Guttenberg with their mission, which is “To recreate the Mississippi River town of Guttenberg as a place for tourists, businesses, workers, and residents to invest their time and money as they enjoy the beauty and splendor of a cluster of spectacular natural sites.”
