OKC grew at 8.16%, DSM 8.32% and OMA 5.54%, yet again top accolades without the prosperity.

If you need a good laugh, go no further...

I just read this article. It also has a link to a related article that indicates that popular cities that formerly ranked high in quality of life, economic growth and affordability seem invariably to become so popular that they cease being affordable places to own or rent a home. Portland, Oregon is listed as a good example of a city no longer deemed affordable. And the article emphasizes that the key to keeping a city affordable is in making sure it's housing supply keeps growing as fast as possible. Particularly rental housing.
I have no idea how Omaha stacks up in terms of constructing enough housing units to satisfy growing demand. Apparently we are doing good enough.

I did as well. Love how snarky comments slamming us got approved right away, but positive comments still wait.

Continuing the theme of this thread, Trulia lists Omaha in it's top 5 cities for millenials.

What can we do to stop this? We are a great city to live in because we have been ignored by the rest of the country and reviled by the rest of Nebraska for so long that we have had the change to become OUR city rather than a collection of trend slaves.

Don't worry. Trulia and other real estate websites aren't exactly sources of hot new trends.

I am reassured by this, but I worry that other cities (like Albuquerque) in a desperate attempt to seem cool, spend their energy trying to chase the latest coolness and end up being unliveable. ABQ is great if you can either afford private school or don't have kids. Need public schools? Well, might have a problem. I like Omaha because it focuses itself on what IT needs, not what others think is cool.

The surprisingly short list of US metro areas achieving inclusive economic growth
However, few of these places achieved inclusive growth. Measured one way—by improving the employment rate, median earnings, and relative poverty—only 11 of the 30 metro areas achieved inclusive economic outcomes: Albany, Austin, Charleston, Columbus, Dayton, Denver, Oklahoma City, Omaha, San Antonio, Tulsa, and Worcester.
