2018 Kearney Strategic Economic Development Plan

In 2008, the Corporation of the Town of Kearney adopted the Strategic Economic Development Plan. Developed by the Economic Development Advisory Committee of Council, and with the aid of student intern Kyla Pratt, the entire document presented a path and a direction which was designed to ensure economic growth and stability while managing the resources of the area.

As it has been ten years since the Strategic Economic Development Plan has been released, it is time to update and create a new 2018 Strategic Plan that aligns with the thoughts and visions of Kearney residents. If interested, please continue to monitor this page for further activities, workshops, and updates!


Our Kearney Community Survey is now closed. Thank you for your Community feedback and recommendations. Many great ideas and thoughts were given! We will now be gathering and analyzing all the feedback. Please continue to stay tuned for updates!
