Some detailed components of “The Program” also involve: establishing a list of target industries and businesses; analyzing trends; assisting in planning and zoning; annexation development as necessary for industry development; enhancing aesthetic qualities of the community; recommendation of quality of life projects; providing for the training of labor; assisting in regional efforts; application submission for Certified City status under the Nebraska Department of Economic Development; and participation in key legislative issues.
