This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "Business Development in Downtown Kearney, " by David R. DiMartino.

The City of Kearney is located in central Nebraska along the Interstate 80-Platte River Valley development corridor, the center of a cluster of small cities, all within a 45 mile radius. Kearney and its neighboring communities are market centers providing services to their resident populations and to the surrounding farm population. Because of their proximity to one another and their orientation to the surrounding population, the several cities have overlapping market areas and vie for some of the same customers.
