Committee Information

Heartland 2050 was created in 2014 by MAPA, as a long range vision for the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro region. Implementation committees, including the Housing & Development Committee, were formed to focus work in core areas of impact. The committee’s vision is that together, our region will be known for welcoming, connected and lively communities that offer residents a range of housing choices and locations.

Housing & Development Committee meetings are held on the third Thursday of every 2 months from 3-4:30 pm. Please visit to sign up for the committee!
