Welcome to Council Bluffs!

Rapidly emerging as a great place to live, Council Bluffs is a community with pride: pride for its role in history, pride for its natural beauty and pride for its strong and varied economy.


Its schools are progressive and achievement-oriented. It boasts leading-edge healthcare. Its public policy initiatives are strong and effective. Its recreational and entertainment options are vast.


Council Bluffs is Unlike Anywhere Else. On Purpose. Unashamed of who we are and who we want to be. Undaunted by the challenges of the future. Unstoried no more. It’s time to make the unknown, known. Time to uncover the people, the places, the history and the happenings that make us proud.
