Advocacy Alert! Keystone Connector (now South Omaha) Trail

January 23rd, 2012 | Author: OmahaBikes

There is an item on the City Council agenda for the January 24 meeting:

Ord. declaring the necessity of acquiring, for use by the City of Omaha, the necessary private property for linear trail corridor purposes, specifically for the South Omaha Trail Phase 2 (formally known as the Keystone Trail East Connector Phase 2) from South 45th and Dayton Streets to the southern terminus of the Field Club Trail; providing that the City negotiate with the property owners for land acquisition, permanent easements and temporary construction easements; providing that as to each specified parcel which cannot be obtained by negotiation, condemnation proceedings be undertaken and completed;

Everything we’ve heard thus far indicates that the trail is on track for completion as early as end of 2012; we certainly don’t want opposition causing any glitches at this stage in the game!

Also note that the official name of this trail is going to be the South Omaha Trail.

Please note: the meeting begins at 2pm in the Legislative Chambers at City Hall (1819 Farnam).
