Re: USL Soccer

Per the OWH today there is another group looking at Omaha as a potential location for a new Pro soccer team. This would be a level lower than the group that was brought up about a month ago. http://www.omaha.com/sports/second-group-seeking-pro-soccer-team-for-omaha-a-lower/article_7b42bb54-f045-5bd...

That's a perfect view, you can see the status of the two story building as well.

You can also see how much of a hole exists with that surface parking lot that was to be HDR's HQ. Ugh.
