TRI-STATE INDEPENDENT BLIND SOCIETY
Within the community, the Society worked with service clubs to provide special equipment and aids, cooperated in the education of school-age children, provided back-up transportation in emergencies, and acted as a resource for the City of Dubuque in its efforts to remove barriers to the blind, elderly, and handicapped.
In January 2017 the announcement was made that the Dubuque Zoning Advisory Commission recommended rezoning a 3.1 acre lot on Cedar Cross Road from light industrial to general commercial use. Society officials said the organization was planning to construct a new facility on the property. The current location at 3333 Asbury was too large and expensive. It was suggested that the site was of interest to Colorado-based grocery chain Natural Grocers. (1) Natural Grocers moved into the building following massive renovation in the fall of 2018.
The 1987 Dubuque City Directory listed 1098 Jackson.
The 1993 Dubuque City Directory listed 3333 Asbury.
