It's even less of a factor because Chalco isn't incorporated. I believe La Vista's annexation goals involve annexing Chalco.

There's also an app that shows every single plane in the sky, it's airline, origin, and destination. So if you ever see a plane over head, you can just pull it up and get all of that info.

Gretna is looking into a massive annexation plan that will more than double their land area and add around 2,000 people to the city limits. The eastern most boundaries of the city would be at 144th, skimming around Wehrspann Lake right up to Giles Road. It looks almost comical. Papillion is already ...
