Heartland 2050 is a long-term vision of the future for the greater Omaha-Council Bluffs metro region – a two-state, six-county area – based on the core values of area residents. This vision will guide our community leaders, giving them a roadmap and identifying strategies that will help them make decisions to create the kind of place our children and grandchildren will want to live and work 40 years from now – a thriving region to call home.
Anyone who is interested in the future of our community should be engaged with Heartland 2050. Visit Heartland 2050 to learn more and to get involved.
