McCOOK, Nebraska -- The City of McCook invites the residents of McCook to participate in a series of Community "Housing Listening Sessions" to discuss housing trends, projections and needs during the next five years. The Listening Sessions will be Monday, Dec. 10, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Keystone Business Center in downtown McCook, 402 Norris Ave.
The Housing Listening Sessions will provide important citizen input for the McCook, Nebraska, Community Housing Study with Strategies for Affordable Housing. Guidance and direction for this Housing Study was provided through a Housing Steering Committee.
This Committee is being assisted by the Planning Consulting Firm of Hanna:Keelan Associates, P.C., of Lincoln, Nebraska.
Funding for this Study was made possible by a Housing Study Grant provided by the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority, with matching funds from the MEDC and the City of McCook.
Residents of McCook and employees who work in the Community had the opportunity to complete three separate Housing Surveys, including a "Housing Needs & Wants Survey," a "Workforce housing Needs Survey" and a "Continuum of Care for Elderly Persons Household Survey."
Survey results, along with other pertinent community demographic information, will be presented at the Housing Listening Sessions.
