Civic Center Park Master Plan

Movie Theatre

I think that a movie theatre surrounded by restaurants and shops within walking distance would be a wonderful idea! The nearest theatre is in Bellevue, and when you are driving teenagers to and from, it can be a stretch. This way, families and teens can walk to the theatre and walk to shops and restaurants. Something similar to what they did with the Aksarben area, even include apartments!

Civic Center Park Master Plan

City Children's Center

Obtain funding and donors to support moving the Omaha Children's Museum to the vacant area and build a world class children's museum. The land already has great features to allow it to be expanded to include some outdoor items such as a fishing pond, paddleboat, canoe, mini putt-putt, and ice skating area. The current Omaha Children's Musuem is in need of parking and expansion room and this effort would draw people ...more »

innovation please

I find it frustrating at the mention of any grand water park idea when we have 2 neighboring communities within 10 min of la vista that have such. Why can't our community look outside the box and bring some new and innovative ideas to the table rather than following what neighboring communities do? I have 3 young children and am completely opposed to having my tax dollars go towards paying for a water park for the next ...more »

Walking/Bike trail

I would love to see the current golf course renovated into a park comparable to Papillion's Walnut Creek with a 5K trail for walking and biking and a playground. The addition of a small splash pad area, picnic areas, and more parking would be great, too. I often drive down to Walnut Creek just to walk that trail, how nice it would be to have a place like closer to home.

Dog Park area

I would love to see a dog park area located in the park or along the trail area that is in future plans that runs along the creek (where the houses have been torn down). There are no all enclosed dog parks in this area. It is a bit of a drive to get to one of the other parks. I think it would attract people from outside La Vista and cause them to want to come back for other things too.

Old Walmart Ice skating rink

Instead of tearing down all of the Old Walmart, why not utilize part of it to make an indoor/outdoor ice skating rink. Make it into a miniture Crown Center Ice Terrace with twinkle lights and have some non-chain "authentic restaurants" added to the area. I do not care for the idea of having a water park added to the area. We have the Pappio Bay Aquatic center already in Papillion and Co-Co Key Resort within close ...more »

Organic grocery store / Retailer

It would be great if LaVista would bring in an Organic Grocery Store like Sprouts in Arizona or Wild Oats in California. We have Whole Foods and Trader Joes in town, so it would great to have something that sets us apart from the others. There is such a growing market for organics that it would bring people to our area and give us locals some other options instead of having to drive outside the area. The Farmer's Market ...more »

Leave the golf course

leave the golf course there because all of the nine hole courses are being closed. Why mess up a goodb thing that people love to do, and that something that is making the city money. Just because the Mayor works for Papio Grenns is no reason to try and gety the golfers to use his course.

New Swimming Hole

Instead of tearing down the old WalMart why not make it into an indoor water park (like Coco Key). It could be used year round, you can charge admission for partial day, full day stays. It would be something families could use all year long, bring in revenue from outside LaVista residents. If you still wanted a regular pool just update one where the current one is. This way there would be an outside pool as well.

La Vista Falls Golf Course

This golf course is an asset to the Community and beneficial in the development of new golfers, it is a challenging affordable course for all ages and beginner golfers. The area that needs redeveloped is not the golf course. The golf course already attracts more foot traffic than your proposed idea will. Dont take down a great family golf course, take down the vacant walmart eyesore and build a park there. The shopping ...more »
