The MRPC is
a multistate organization which works collectively to preserve, promote and
enhance the scenic, historic and recreational resources of the Mississippi
River; to foster the economic growth of the corridor; and to develop the
national, scenic and historic parkway known as the Great River Road.
As part of
the MRPC, the Iowa MRPC focuses on the same mission objectives in relation to
Iowa's portions of the National Scenic Byway, the Iowa Great River Road, and
the Mississippi River Valley. The governor appoints members to the Iowa MRPC
from each of the 10 counties that border the Mississippi River. These include
Allamakee, Clayton, Dubuque, Jackson, Clinton, Scott, Muscatine, Louisa, Des
Moines and Lee counties. The Iowa MRPC also includes ex-officio members from
the Iowa Department of Transportation, Iowa Department of Natural Resources,
Iowa Economic Development Authority’s Iowa Tourism Office, and the Army Corps
