Potter Statistics
Nebraska Tourism
  Potter's vital statistics
INFORMATION suggests new households are moving into town for the following reasons:
  • Attraction of regional jobs, particularly in Sidney,
           which is only a 20  minute commute.
  • Community appearance and size.
  • Superior school system ~  Potter-Dix Public School.
  • Sense of community and friendliness.
  • Affordable housing.
    During the 1980's, Potter staked out a claim as a unique community in the Panhandle area. Potter's population grew, largely as a result of attracting both younger families and senior households. This trend toward positive migration and growth is a strong foundation for future development. A high degree of community pride and activism has helped secure the town's role as an excellent living environment.

You know you're in a small town when . . . .

   .. your area code is as large as the population.
   .. children are our most important commodity.
   .. you hear a dog barking and you know whose it is.
   .. you get a wrong number and talk for 15 minutes anyway.
   .. the main street really is.
   .. the talk over the backyard fence isn't always gossip!
   .. Sundays are what Sundays should be.
   .. the only time you need to lock your car is during zucchini season.
   .. you can't walk for exercise, because everyone who drives by offers you a ride.
