Planned recreation area has Nebraska builders standing at the ready
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A new recreation area between Omaha and Lincoln, which could add nearly $2 billion to the local economy, has local builders chomping at the bit.
Members of the Metro Omaha Builders Association say they’re ready to help get the project across the finish line.
The planned recreation area would be 4,000 acres, including the 7-mile-long sandpit lake. Some of the land will be allotted for real estate development.
