- Southport West by Cabela's
- 126th & Highway 370
- Kennedy Town Center in Bellevue along the freeway
The highway 370 location, if chosen, could be summarized in two words: "Epic Fail." Fans would have to drive to Sapp Brothers at the highway 50 exit, then drive a mile south, then a mile or two east. Convenient for the folks in Papillion, to be sure. But for the rest of the metro area? Out of sight...out of mind.
The Bellevue area is intriguing, but it completely blows away all of the assumptions that folks made about landing in west Sarpy County. It's about 10 minutes south of Rosenblatt, so again, for most of the metro area, it's a further drive than before.
Now, how much is Southport going to charge Sarpy County to build the boondoggle in what really is the only choice? That's the question...and if they build it there, how much more will Sarpy County have to raise taxes to pay for it?
Speaking of which...we still have no idea how Sarpy is going to pay for all this.
