Sparks fly for county growth
13 Aug 2020
An economic development boom in Thayer County began quietly igniting over a year ago.
In addition to Hebron’s Downtown Revitalization, LandMark Implement’s new building on Highway 81 and improvements to Hebron Municipal Airport, Thayer County Economic Development Alliance received a grant from the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority to partially help with funding a housing study, which is like a ticket to more grant funds for the county’s communities.
Liz Cody, a community development specialist for Southeast Nebraska Development District, assisted the nonprofit TCEDA with the grant for the housing study.
“Thayer County is active,” Cody said. She’s excited to see the coordination of effort between Hebron and TCEDA. “It’s passionate folks committed to moving things forward. I see them leading and making strides.”
