In the spring of 2012, the communities of Plainview, Pierce, Osmond and Hadar came together in a meeting with commissioner Jim Maas in Osmond to discuss the future of economic development in Pierce County.

In July of 2012, with funding provided by Pierce County, the Pierce County Economic Development Corporation (PCED) was formed.

In August 2020 the Pierce County Economic Development Corporation was dissolved. The PCED board signed an inter-local agreement with Pierce County. This action created a new office, Pierce County Economic Development. PCED is now a county office. 

With the intent to unite the communities to serve economic growth across the county, our board of directors and the Pierce County Commissioners work closely to assist area municipalities, employers and entrepreneurs. 

Our strategic goals include: housing development, business development, community planning and the promotion of Pierce County Nebraska.
