If you like moving forward, you’ve come to the right place! Columbus, Nebraska, is hard at work building our future. Physical structures are being built from one end of Columbus to the other….in fact, more construction is going on right now than at any other time in our history! That success story includes a new high school, new YMCA, new police station, new fire station, new roads, new retail, huge expansions at local businesses, and lots of new housing.
Columbus is home to some 6,000 manufacturing jobs with companies ranging from Fortune 500 to small, homegrown enterprises. We have low unemployment, but still have talented people looking for greater opportunities. We are a place that welcomes all who want to show up, go to work, and get things done. If that describes you, then you’ll fit right in!
As we commonly say, Columbus is where collaboration lives. If you like working together toward a common goal; then you’ll love it here. This spirit of unity is evident every day, in tangible projects like those mentioned above and also when local schools work together, city and county governments collaborate, and public‑private partnerships form to improve life for our citizens. It took everyone working together to bring more than 300 new residences into development. Now, that’s the power of collaboration!
Columbus is proud of what we have to offer and proud that others see it, too. Columbus has been named one of the “Top 100 Best Small Towns” by CNN/Money Magazine twice in the past decade. But we’re not resting…in fact, we are building an even better future, and we hope you’ll be part of it.
