From the Welcome to Kearney site:


Kearney is the most dynamic smaller city in Nebraska – quite possibly the Midwest – and it affords amenities usually found only in much larger communities. Enjoy a full range of services typically associated with more urban markets such as the University of Nebraska at Kearney (about 7,000 students), Good Samaritan Health Systems (a regional referral hospital), and a bustling hospitality industry featuring excellent convention and hotel accommodations.

The community features a growing, diversified economy yet, Kearney remains a livable example of “Main Street America,” blending the best of large and small towns. Safe and secure yet progressive. Recently, a national trade journal rated Kearney a “Dream Town” and another rated its public schools as “Blue Ribbon” performers, among the best in the country.

During the preceding decade Kearney has been the fastest growing non metro city in Nebraska of more than 20,000 people. Now, at about 30,000 population, Kearney is growing at a rate of 1.2% to 1.5% annually, and it lies at the center (60 mile radius) of a pool of 218,000 potential employees or customers right on Interstate 80.

Doing business with the rest of the world is easier in Kearney due to Frontier Communications superior telecommunications infrastructure that features digital switching through both a DMS 100 and a GTD 5. Those features are complimented by DSL, ISDN, a SONET Fiber Ring, AT&T point of presence, Sprint Fiber Network and a full range of business services. Big pipes to help companies conduct big business anywhere.

Business managers like Kearney because of its workforce and array of supporting services, and families like Kearney because of its livability.
