Several Attend Northeast NE Housing Tour


By Patty Plugge

Executive Director, Burt County Economic Development Corporation

Forty-three people met in Wayne on Wednesday, June 24th for the Northeast NE Housing Tour.  The goal of the tour was to showcase successful housing projects in rural Nebraska, and explore the different funding methods.  After hearing from Patty Plugge, Burt County Economic Development Director, during lunch, the group boarded a bus for a tour of housing projects in Wakefield, Pender and Wayne.

This program was a result of a regional economic development planning process called Stronger Economies Together.  One of the goals resulting from the 17-county plan is to improve the housing stock in Northeast NE.  Sharing information with interested individuals from city and county governments, bankers, real estate brokers, contractors and volunteers is the first step in meeting this goal.  There are plans for a Housing Summit to take place in the near future to provide more details on tools to assist in housing development.  More information will be provided when a date is determined.
