The City of Warrensburg, the largest of the 2008 DREAM communities, is located in west-central Missouri, about an hour southeast of the Kansas City area. Warrensburg is the county seat of Johnson County and has a population of about 19,000. As home to the University of Central Missouri and neighboring Whiteman Air Force base, the community is greatly enhanced by the presence of students, military personnel and their families.

The City of Warrensburg was designated a DREAM community in the fall of 2008. Task items within the planning process began in 2009 with importance on building upon a regional destination status, improving the mix of uses and marketing efforts.
