The Nebraska City shopper has long dreamed of being a part of a bustling, outdoor-focused community.
But with the state’s $1.9 billion budget cut, the town has had to look elsewhere.
The town’s first outdoor shopping destination opened in the late ’80s and quickly became a popular stop for local shoppers who wanted a taste of the outdoors.
But in recent years, the community has struggled to keep up with demand for outdoor merchandise, according to the city’s planning and zoning committee.
That’s led to a lack of retail space, and residents say the community needs to diversify.
In order to do so, the committee is looking to add more retail options for the community, including a new location that will include a second outdoor space.
Nebraska City residents have long dreamed about a second, outdoor shopping area, and now they’ve got their chance.
The community wants to expand the outdoor shopping experience to include a store with a second indoor space, according a news release from the planning and development committee.
It also wants to open a second store at the intersection of Main Street and Washington Avenue.
The committee will begin the process to finalize the plan on Wednesday.
The proposal will need to be approved by the town’s planning board and the town of Omaha.
