The City of Manchester provides great opportunity and a wonderful quality of life for its residents. Manchester prides itself as a safe and quiet community in which to live and raise a family. The town is located geographically in the triangle of Dubuque, Waterloo and Cedar Rapids, giving residents all the advantages of a small town, yet living near enough to the larger cities to take advantage of the opportunities they may offer. Like many smaller communities, our residents make Manchester a special place to call home.
The City of Manchester has experienced steady growth in recent years with the construction of new homes, a vibrant downtown/business district, and a strong industrial sector. Manchester is geographically positioned for continued growth, and has several tracts of undeveloped land to accommodate residential, commercial and industrial growth potential.
