Welcome to Bellevue

n behalf of the Bellevue City Council and all of our residents, I am excited to welcome you and invite you to get involved and experience all that our community has to offer. Here, in the heart of the Great Plains, our city sits on rolling hills overlooking the Missouri River. Our citizens enjoy a lifestyle that blends the latest in entertainment and leisure activities with an old-time atmosphere that’s friendly and welcoming. One of the first things that visitors notice is that Bellevue is a very patriotic community and proud to be the home of Offutt Air Force Base. We are always working to keep our economy growing, and you will find both small businesses and large corporations are valued members of our community. Bellevue has a strong technology infrastructure that supports growth and opportunity. We want developers to know that “Bellevue Is Open for Business.” Low unemployment, low cost of living, low utility rates, low crime and a strong education system ranging from great public schools to a nationally recognized university are hallmarks of our city. I would especially encourage you to take advantage of the many recreational opportunities that Bellevue has to offer. With over 600 acres of parks, wooded and paved trails that stretch for miles, numerous golf courses and dozens of ball fields, Bellevue truly offers recreational activities for all ages. These are many of the reasons that Money Magazine has listed Bellevue as “the Best Place to Live in Nebraska.” Whether you are a resident or a visitor, I am sure you will find what you are looking for in Bellevue! We invite you to explore our website at www.bellevue.net, and to be in touch if you have any questions or comments. We would love to hear from you. Sincerely, Rusty Hike Mayor Bellevue City Hall 1500 Wall St., 402-293-3000

Champions for Children


n behalf of Bellevue Public Schools, welcome to the Bellevue/Offutt community! I am honored to lead a team that is passionate about education. Every decision we make begins with the question, “What is the right thing for our students?” Bellevue Public Schools is among the best. We believe in giving our students the best education possible. This means providing excellent teachers, strong curriculum designed by those who teach it and the right tools, stateof-the-art technology, maintaining quality facilities and creating a safe and inviting learning environment. Along with upholding a tradition of excellence, our focus is on teamwork where all students, staff, families and community members work together. I believe a trusting and collaborative climate, a shared mission and a staff that takes initiative are important factors in strengthening our district. Please take time to look over our website, www.bellevuepublicschools.org. Our accomplishments are many, and they take teamwork, communication, leadership, a strong curriculum, accountability, efficiency and a dynamic group of people. The Bellevue/Offutt community is a great place to live, work and raise a family. We are fortunate to have a community that supports and values education. Above everything, we put our students first. It is the promise of the community and the mission of this school district. We are Champions for Children! Educationally yours, Jeff Rippe, Ed.D. Superintendent, Bellevue Public Schools

A supportive community



elcome to Bellevue, home to Offutt Air Force Base and the 55th Wing. The 55th Wing’s mission is to provide dominant intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, electronic attack and nuclear command and control to national leadership and war fighters anytime, anyplace. Offutt AFB is not only critical to the war-fighting mission, but also to more than 70 partner units, including U.S. Strategic Command, 557th Weather Wing, 595th Command & Control Group and the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency. Together, Team Offutt works on behalf of the American people to ensure we meet the expectations of America’s senior leaders. Offutt AFB was originally established in 1896 as Fort Crook, in honor of Maj. Gen. George Crook, a Civil War hero. In 1924, Fort Crook officially designated its airfield as Offutt Field, named after 1st Lt. Jarvis Offutt, an Omaha native who died during World War I when his aircraft crashed in France. Today, Offutt AFB is highly active in the support of our national defense as we conduct 24/7 operations around the world, embodying our motto, “The Sun Never Sets on the Fightin’ Fifty-Fifth!” However, we would not be successful in our various missions if not for the worldclass support we receive from the local community. Simply put, the Bellevue community is second-to-none, and I cannot thank you enough.

elcome to this extraordinary community, home of U.S. Strategic Command. USSTRATCOM is a global war-fighting command responsible for deterring strategic attack and employing forces, as directed, to guarantee the security of our nation and our allies. We have 150,000 people representing all four military services plus civilians around the globe performing nuclear operations, global strike, joint electromagnetic spectrum operations, missile defense, analysis and targeting, and missile threat assessment. They keep watch 24/7/365 to keep our nation safe. USSTRATCOM is one of 11 combatant commands in the Department of Defense that was originally established in 1992 as a nuclear command and was reborn in 2002 when we added space to our portfolio. Over the past 17 years, we added and removed various missions. Space is the latest mission to move from USSTRATCOM’s responsibilities, when U.S. Space Command activated in September 2019. We remain focused on strategic deterrence of our nation and allies, and are the ultimate guarantor of our nation’s safety and security. We recently moved into our new Command and Control Facility (C2F) where we are better able to deter our adversaries. This state-of-the-art facility exemplifies the Department of Defense’s commitment to strategic deterrence, and our commitment to remaining part of this incredible community for decades to come. This is my third assignment at USSTRATCOM and Offutt AFB, and my wife, Lisa, and I could not be happier to be back. We love this community and everything it offers our military forces and civilians. Bellevue and the greater Omaha area are unmatched in the support they provide to the military. Thank you for supporting our community and making this a truly special place.

Sincerely, Gavin P. Marks Colonel, USAF Commander, 55th Wing

Sincerely, Charles A. Richard Admiral, U.S. Navy Commander

BELLEVUE HISTORY 1822 About as early as Bellevue can concretely trace its origins as the oldest permanent settlement in Nebraska. A fur trading post operated by Joshua Pilcher was a dot on the sparse landscape. Other fur traders followed. Most notable was Peter Sarpy. Sarpy was a jack-of-all-trades: fur trader, trading post proprietor, ferry operator, businessman and county namesake.




Spurred by the premise of Manifest Destiny, the California Gold Rush and the Mormon exodus, Americans migrated westward rapidly in the 1840s and 1850s. To encourage pioneers to stay in their fledgling community, Peter Sarpy aided in establishing the Bellevue Town Company, incorporating in 1855.

Built in 1856, First Presbyterian Church, 2002 Franklin St., is the oldest church in Nebraska. The church was regularly used for 100 years. It featured beautiful stained-glass windows, locally crafted oak pews and an elevated pulpit.




The log cabin, now located at 1805 Hancock St., is one of the oldest buildings in the state. The structure was home to a Native American chief, an early Sarpy County judge, and a Civil War veteran. The log cabin is on the National Register of Historic Landmarks.

Sarpy County of the Nebraska Territory was carved out of Douglas County. Bellevue residents successfully petitioned to secede from the north.

The oldest train depot in Nebraska is at 2402 Clay St., adjacent to the Sarpy County Historical Museum. It was built in 1869 and relocated to its present location in 1987. It was built by the Omaha Southwestern Railroad and later served as the Burlington Railroad depot.

1941 Fort Crook was selected as a site for the Martin Bomber Plant during the onset of World War II. Ground was broken in March 1941. More than 2,000 bombers were produced there, including the Enola Gay and Bockscar, which were used to drop atomic bombs near the end of the war. At its height, the plant had more than 10,000 employees; 40% were women.

1948 Fort Crook was redesignated Offutt Air Force Base after local fallen World War I pilot Jarvis Offutt. It took on new challenges, contesting Cold War threats and serving as headquarters of Strategic Air Command from 1948 to 1992.



Bellevue had struggled to survive as a community, but the commissioning of a new army installation on the outskirts of the village marked the start of a special relationship Bellevue maintains with the military. Named after veteran Civil War Gen. George Crook, Fort Crook would play an important role in a number of conflicts including the Spanish American War and World War I.

Marine aviator and World War II veteran Bill Brooks saw the value of education but also realized the struggle to balance work and school. He helped to create a higher education opportunity in Bellevue geared toward nontraditional students. Brooks was part of Bellevue University’s first graduating class.

Bellevue Offutt Rising Professionals


ellevue Offutt Rising Professionals bridges military and civilian professionals through innovative programming that enhances the Bellevue/Offutt community’s long-term economic vitality and quality of life. “There are several reasons we in the Air Force pursue community and public outreach, and BORP addresses them head-on, says Chief Master Sgt. Dave Monaco, USAF. “It is vitally important that the Air Force build trust and confidence with the local community to ensure continued support of our people at home and in dangerous places around the world. As the U.S. military is composed of an all-volunteer force who will ultimately transition back into the civilian sector, it is crucial we prepare them for that life event and seek out opportunities for their growth through education, employment and general wellness initiatives. Through the many networking opportunities and collaborative partnerships afforded by membership in BORP, we prepare our military members for the transition by pairing the best and brightest from both worlds and help educate the business community on the amazing talents of our service members.”





Value Statement BORP will embrace a culture of excellence, integrity and growth as the central foundation of its identity, with a commitment to leadership, diversity, connections, community and development. The Bellevue Chamber will enhance their value though its connections with the Bellevue business community and Offutt leadership. The Bellevue Chamber will be a conduit for communication, networking, marketing, public relations, financial management, mentorship, continuity and credibility as an established community leader.

Mission Statement To grow commerce, promote members and connect people.

A philanthropic community

e it supporting community programming, helping to provide scholarships or keeping facilities looking fresh, Bellevue’s charitable foundations help keep the city in tip-top shape by contributing the necessary funds for growth and improvement.


Community leaders and other citizens of Bellevue first organized the foundation in May 2012. Since its inception, the group has donated more than $200,000 to organizations and projects that serve Bellevue. The Bellevue Community Foundation Grant Program provides an opportunity for not-for-profit charitable organizations to secure financial assistance for programs or projects which will enhance and improve the quality of life for Bellevue residents. The foundation has a strong commitment toward programs benefiting health, art, culture, community, economic development, education and human services. Previous grant winners include the Bellevue Senior Community Center, the Latino Center of the Midlands, City of Bellevue Parks Department and others. The foundation has also contributed money to help build a splash pad at Bellevue’s Everett Park and to construct new scoreboards for Bellevue Junior Sports Association and Baldwin Field. In addition, the foundation supports Light Up Bellevue, an organization designed to beautify Bellevue by setting up lights throughout the year. For more information or to donate, visit www.bellevuecommunityfoundation.org.


The foundation was created to promote comprehensive and integrated economic development for the greater Bellevue area. The organization helps to sponsor several Bellevue events. Find the foundation on Facebook by searching “Bellevue Economic Enhancement Foundation.”


Business and community leaders have joined forces to help ensure that public education remains quality. The group develops programs to improve student and teacher performance and raises funds for scholarships, grants and teacher recognition. The foundation also helps to build playgrounds and offers classroom innovation grants.

Denny Gilbert, treasurer for the Bellevue Public Schools Foundation, gets a first try of Fort Crook Elementary’s new slide. The school, with donations from the community and the Bellevue Public Schools Foundation, received a new playground for students.

Since Midlands Community Foundation’s inception in 1994, the program has donated more than $8.5 million to local organizations. The Foundation’s mission is to benefit the diverse needs of the Sarpy and Cass county communities by providing financial support, involvement and service. The Midlands Community Foundation raises dollars for its general fund through two major sources each year, a golf tournament and the annual Reflection Ball. This past year the foundation awarded more than $1.1 million to charitable nonprofits through its grants, discretionary gifts and charitable funds programs. The Midlands Community Foundation Grant Program provides an opportunity for not-for-profit charitable organizations to secure financial assistance. The group awards grants twice annually.

ffutt Air Force Base is home to the 55th Wing, U.S. Strategic Command, 557th Weather Wing, 595th Command & Control Group and the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency. Offutt’s diverse missions and global responsibilities put it on the cutting edge of the United States’ security. Each

branch of the military is represented among the approximately 10,000 military and federal employees assigned here.




The 55th Wing, headquartered at Offutt Air Force Base, is Air Combat Command’s largest wing with a budget of more than $246 million annually, 44 aircraft, 30 squadrons and more than 7,000 employees. The wing conducts a global flying mission with worldwide reconnaissance and treaty verification tasked by our nation’s highest levels. Additionally, it provides base support to more than 50 associate units, including U.S. Strategic Command, the 557th Weather Wing and a military community of more than 57,000. The 55th Wing traces its lineage to the 55th Pursuit Group, which was activated Jan. 15, 1941, at Hamilton Field, California. Today, the wing is comprised of six groups, five at Offutt AFB and one at DavisMonthan AFB, Arizona.

U.S. Strategic Command, one of 10 unified combatant commands of the Department of Defense, is responsible for detecting, deterring and preventing strategic attacks against the United States and its allies and partners, and is prepared to deliver war-fighting capability to defend the nation. USSTRATCOM responds to today’s complex, dynamic and uncertain global security environment with an integrated organization. The command executes a diverse set of global responsibilities in coordination with other combatant commands and appropriate U.S. government agencies that directly contribute to national security. The headquarters element employs more than 2,250 people representing all four military services, Department of Defense civilians and contractors. They oversee the command’s global operations – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A global combatant command with trans-regional areas of responsibility, USSTRATCOM has evolved from a single focus on nuclear war-planning to an integrated portfolio of dynamic strategic capabilities to successfully redefine global deterrence and confront the full range of national security challenges with timely, effective and precision effects.

The mission of the 557th Weather Wing, the Air Force’s only weather wing, is to exploit timely, accurate and relevant weather information anytime and everywhere on the globe. This is done by providing around-the-clock authoritative terrestrial and space-environmental data, analyses, forecasts, threat-warning and threat-mitigation products and services for the Department of Defense, military services, all geographic and functional combatant commands, the National Intelligence Community, White House Situation Room, interagency, allied and coalition partners around the world across multiple security enclaves. Headquartered at Offutt Air Force Base, the 557th is composed of 1,450 personnel in two groups and 12 squadrons spanning 19 globally dispersed locations. Through the 1st and 2nd Weather Groups, the wing integrates leading-edge threat-based weather forecasts and warnings, as well as climatological projection and solar-threat expertise, into all operational phases. From managing daily risk for protection of personnel and resources, to shaping war-fighter planning and execution of kinetic and non-kinetic engagements, to enabling long-range strategic basing decisions, the 557th empowers decision makers to “choose the weather for battle” and achieve the nation’s objectives.

EVENTS MADE SIMPLE 595TH COMMAND & CONTROL GROUP The 595th Command & Control Group (C2G) is a geographically separated unit of Eighth Air Force. Established in 2016, the group consolidates all of the Air Force’s Nuclear Command and Control Communications into one unit. The 595th C2G is composed of four squadrons: the 1st Airborne Command Control Squadron, which operates the E-4B National Airborne Operations Center; the 595th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, which is responsible for sustainment and upkeep of the E-4B; the 595th Strategic Communication Squadron, which provides real-time, secure, nuclear survivable missile warning and C3 capabilities; and the 625th Strategic Operations Squadron, which maintains current and accurate targeting for the nation’s Intercontinental Ballistic Missile fleet and combat forces for two positions on board the U.S. Navy’s E-6B Mercury Strategic Command Airborne Command Post aircraft.

DEFENSE POW/MIA ACCOUNTING AGENCY The mission of the Defense POW/ MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) is to provide the fullest possible accounting of U.S. personnel from past conflicts to their families and the nation. DPAA is responsible for implementing the secretary of defense’s program to account for the more than 82,000 Department of Defense personnel and other individuals who remain unaccounted from the World War II era through the Gulf Wars. Since 2003, DPAA has identified 250 unaccounted-for service members who had been buried as unknowns at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, called the “Punchbowl,” in Honolulu. They have come from the USS Oklahoma, USS West Virginia and USS California.
