In the absence of Hal Daub's lake... I'll take the corn fields we already have... perhaps a commuter train connecting the two cities.

I'm in no hurry to see sprawl fill in this area.

I would have loved that lake but it would have been at the expense of many people's homes and way of life.

Post your thoughts at I-80 Official Survey. The Governor set up the Nebraska Innovation Zone Council (http://www.neded.org/content/view/197/719/ - broken link)to try and adress this very question. That link is a survey they are doing. The World Hearld had a report on it a few weeks back.

I filled it out and it didn't take too long. Some very good questions/thoughts.

Yes, please let the state know of your ideas. I would like to see the Mahoney area become a larger tourist area, probably with an amuesment park, with the beauty being maintained. I would also like to see a light rail, that would be really progressive for Nebraska. I would like to see the Nebraska Crossing outlet become an outlet mall like in Colorado or Branson because my wife loves those! Finally, a tech center type area like Denver's near Waverly or Gretna.

Default the area...

This area around the three rivers, and lakes has way too much potential to be filled up with just concrete..

I'm thinking an entertainment district along the green areas, and like stargazer said a commuter train to connect to connect the two cities.

Houses and developments can be developed anywhere, PLEASE don't wast this land, this land has more potential than just about any near Omaha/Lincoln to be developed into a very unique nature/entertainment area.. We don't have to stop development of other types, just reserve this area...

I'd like to see a theme park, and eventually my executive mansion.

I agree. I'd like to see some sort of "Worlds of Fun" type attraction. Granted, those places kind of drive me nuts, but I think it would produce a much need influx of tourism dollars. Just for a second think of the draw that the Omaha area would have with a major theme park and the Henry Doorly Zoo. It would turn into a major destination for families to take weekend vacations. That doesn't even include other things like Mahoney State Park and Air and Space Museum.

The Sand Hills are good enough for me in terms of tourism. KC is not really that far from Omaha and SE Nebraska if you want to go to "Worlds of Fun"

The point is that having two large attractions like Henry Doorly and a Worlds of Fun would really add drawing strength. You're right...as it is people just go to Worlds of Fun. The point is to get them to come to Omaha instead of KC.
