Seward County Track Proposal Generates Concern

Seward County could be home to a new drag strip. That's if the County Commission approves it. Nebraska Motorplex, is currently in the process of choosing a site for the track. Tuesday, dozens of people who live in the area packed into a public meeting to voice their concerns. Many say it will bring down their property value, and that the noise will affect their over all quality of life. Those proposing the track say it will bring tourist dollars into the community, and that there will not be a lot of noise.

Tuesday, the County Commission approved a grant to help pay for lighting at the proposed track. Motorplex hopes to choose a property site by June 30th.
