Broken Bow, Neb. – With its rolling sandhills, friendly communities, prosperous educational and business opportunities, and state-of-the-art healthcare and medical facilities, Custer County, Neb. offers a rich quality of life that is second to none.

Since 2003, the Custer Economic Development Corporation (CEDC) has dedicated its resources to helping new and expanding businesses progress in the heart of Custer County. To aid in this effort, the CEDC recently went live with a new website, http://www.custercountyne.com, designed to further foster business growth and retention in the county.

“The CEDC strives to nurture a positive business climate by creating jobs, encouraging economic diversity and increasing the tax base while improving the quality of life for Custer County residents,” said Liz Babcock, president of the CEDC.

Visitors to http://www.custercountyne.com can keep abreast on county events and news updated daily on the front page, but what the site really excels at is lending assistance to those new to the area. Whether for business or pleasure, settling in the area has never been easier or more streamlined than with the site’s easy-to-navigate links to business prospects, employment, housing and more.

“The new website will serve as a resource for current businesses and residents, as well as those looking to relocate to the area, start up a business, find employment or simply learn more about Broken Bow and Custer County,” Babcock said.

“With their first-class amenities and top-notch standard of living, Broken Bow and Custer County have so much to offer; we hope that custercountyne.com can give a snapshot of what others can look forward to experiencing when visiting or moving to the area,” she added.

The site was designed and created with the assistance of the Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD). To date, NPPD has developed more than 150 websites for communities and economic development groups with which it works.
