What's in the Works?

Thursday's session topics will range from stormwater utility fees to sign ordinances. Learn how Moline Centre has helped to restore the heart of downtown Moline. After some friendly discussions on the differences in planning in Iowa vs. Illinois, jump on the Quad Cities' Ferry Service for a one-of-a-kind mobile session. The Channel Cat Water Taxi has been recognized by National Geographic and the Mississippi River Geotourism Stewardship Council as one of the best destinations for travelers seeking an authentic experience of the region. Once you're back on solid ground, we'll be heading over to Moline's River House Bar & Grill for some good food and networking. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, Friday will offer mobile sessions all day! The ISS has arranged 5 different mobile sessions, sure to please professionals from all specialties:
