The McCook Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is preparing a Community Housing Study for the City of McCook, Nebraska.  The Study will highlight current demographic and economic statistical data, local housing unit “target demand” and a five year “Housing Action Plan” for new housing development and existing housing rehabilitation activities.


The Housing Study is being funded by a Housing Study Grant from the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority, in combination with local funding.  MEDC is being assisted by Hanna:Keelan Associates, P.C., a Lincoln, Nebraska-based community planning and research consulting firm.


An important component of this Housing Study is a “Community Housing Survey.”   All citizens of the Community and surrounding area are encouraged to participate.  The Survey will be advertised on the MEDC and City websites, as well as various social media outlets.  Paper copies will also be available at the MEDC Office and McCook City Hall.


A “Workforce Housing Needs Survey” will also be made available to persons employed at select businesses and industries in McCook and a "Student Housing Needs Survey" for local college students.


The Community Housing and Workforce Housing Needs Surveys must be completed by Friday, March 25th.  Paper copies can be returned to the MEDC office (402 Norris Avenue, Suite 301).  Questions regarding the Housing Study or Surveys can be directed to MEDC, at 308-345-1200, or Nate Schneider, City Administrator, 308-345-2022.
