Re: Phi Kappa Psi house Redevelopment (36th and Farnam)

Between the 800 stall lot to the northeast and the 200 stalls to the southwest there seems to be ample parking for this building - kudos for finding shared parking solutions instead of building more surface parking.

Re: Omaha Eppley Airfield

Are PDEW numbers an average?

Why are 29 people flying back and forth from Fort Myers each day? Meaning, what is the connection with Omaha?

EDIT: Maybe Mutual of Omaha?
