Re: LB 840 Bellevue Development

I don't think residents will be happy with a manufacturing facility out to the west. My experience is that no one in this Metro is ever happy about anything, whether good or bad. So screw the Nimbys and let's get this done already. Also, here's a page from Bellevue's website with more information, ...

This is certainly breaking the mold of most recent east Omaha developments that provide roughly the same amount of parking as units.
