2017 Papillion Annexation

Postby Brad » Wed Oct 11, 2017 8:19 am

Papillion unveils annexation package as part of continued move 'from a small town to a big city'

http://www.omaha.com/news/metro/papilli ... c114d.html

By Hailey Konnath / World-Herald staff writer wrote:The plan includes the Cottonwood neighborhood, as well as the Facebook data center, Omaha National Cemetery and Travelers data center. It would bring about 750 people and 800 acres into city limits. The latest estimates put the city at 19,597 people and 4,288 acres.

If the package is approved, city limits would extend east to roughly 66th Street and Cornhusker Road and south and west to about Nebraska Highway 50 and Capehart Road. If Gretna’s annexation also passes, the city limits of the two would be less than a mile apart in places.

Another southwest thrust. Did Papillion and Springfield come up with an agreement as far as their boundaries go? I'd be surprised if they didn't come out with an aggressive annexation of their own soon.

Sorry for the late reply. I recently have switched to a position where I’m not near a computer that much. As for annexation I see Gretna and Papillion are having a battle. Any idea why Gretna thinks papillion is bullying them?

Papillion squeezed Springfield a few years ago and has fought Bellevue in the past. Maybe Gretna wanted to go east as far as they wanted before Papillion or LaVista went after it?

That’s the Headache you get when you have 3 cities in one small area. Elk horn tried to do that with Omaha. Thankfully Omaha saw what was happening and stopped it.
