Initially created to clean up (environmental contamination), assemble, and to get sites back into the market, we quickly grew into an organization that could identify and leverage opportunities around development.  The goal is to respond to the housing and community development needs identified by the residents of Council Bluffs. We continue to look for redevelopment opportunities that are vital to Council Bluffs.
