Project at a Glance
The city of Gering is in the process of completing a Master Plan and Zoning Code Update initiative. This integrated process will utilize input gathered from citizens to establish a cohesive vision for Gering's future and chart a course for successful implementation.
Why is this project important?
Gering is changing and growing. According to the latest U.S. Census data, Gering is one of the fastest growing communities in Western Nebraska with a population growth of nearly 10%. To prepare for this growth and address critical issues associated with development the City has initiated a Master Plan and Zoning Code Update to help guide future development and policy and set a vision for the future. These two documents will serve as a framework to help preserve and enhance the best qualities of Gering, and help create the kinds of places residents want.
