Bellevue is a quiet, and relaxing town residing on the great Mississippi River. Historic small towns have lots of great, amazing history.

The Blackhawk Indians were the first to settle in Bellevue. Americans began moving westward, and settled here around 1833. Most figured this would a be a great area to settle in because of the river being so close.

These early settlers were the ones who formed “Bell View”. The spelling of the town’s name was later changed to “Bell Vue” which literally means, “Beautiful View”. In time, the two words were united.

Bellevue is one of the oldest cities in Jackson County and one of the five oldest cities in Iowa. With many historical places, and lots of enjoyable things to do; Bellevue is no doubt, a great place to live.

Jackson County Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan

The federal government requires all states and local governments to have hazard mitigation plans approved by FEMA that are consistent with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000.  This is required to maintain eligibility for certain types of federal Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grants. Hazard mitigation planning is a process to identify hazards that pose risk as well as develop mitigation actions to reduce or prevent damage from those hazards. A planning committee comprised of representatives from Jackson County, the incorporated cities, public school districts, and other stakeholders including private businesses, private non-profits, and others is currently developing an update to the comprehensive Jackson County Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan with a strategy to reduce the vulnerability of people and property in the planning area to the impacts of hazards and to remain eligible for mitigation funding programs from FEMA. One of the key components of a hazard mitigation plan is public input during the planning process.  The planning committee will be evaluating information on the hazards that impact each jurisdiction within Jackson County.  The committee is seeking your input on the hazards that will be evaluated as well as your opinions on the types of activities that should be considered to reduce future impacts.  Your comments will be considered by your community’s representatives on the planning committee as the plan is developed.  Please take a few moments to answer the following questions.  Thank you for your participation.
