TCD Keeps Things Moving in the Economic Heart of Western Nebraska
Twin Cities Development (TCD) is the economic development organization for the Western Nebraska communities of Gering, Bayard, Terrytown, Mitchell, Scotts Bluff County, and Bridgeport. We focus on a regional approach for success using state-of-the-art-technology and goals oriented towards quality of place, making sure to maintain our rural atmosphere and friendly midwest lifestyle. Our reach extends to providing assistance to Scottsbluff, Minatare, Morrill, and Kimball.
Why “Twin Cities”? Scottsbluff and Gering, separated only by the North Platte River, have grown together to form the 7th largest urban area in Nebraska, which incorporates the small city of Terrytown as well.
TCD was founded in 1985 to support economic development activities that create jobs, bring new capital into the area, and support the expansion of existing businesses. Our goal is to increase the housing supply, support the growth of local talent and skills, optimize programs and resources, showcase our communities, and implement innovation to maximize services and productivity. We work closely with the Gering-Scottsbluff United Chamber of Commerce, Panhandle Area Development District (PADD), and other entities to remain on target to assist and support our business community. We aim to implement progress to keep things moving along.
TCD cultivates an atmosphere for growth and success for businesses, entrepreneurs, and site selectors. Membership in TCD has its advantages. As a non-profit entity, we offer our members essential business and economic development services at little to no cost.
