Public Invited to Learn About Re-Use of Landfill Property

The public is invited to a community meeting Tuesday, February 3 to learn about the City's proposed plan to re-use portions of the North 48th St. Landfill facility property. The meeting is from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Auld Recreation Center, 3140 Sumner St. A formal presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m.

The 570-acre site at 5101 N. 48th St. was a municipal landfill and now operates as a construction and demolition debris landfill as well as a transfer station. The site has many natural resources including wetlands, streams, vegetation and wildlife. The City is considering mostly recreational uses for the property, including bicycle sports, cross country running, bird watching, hiking and various shooting sports. The City is developing an "end-use" plan that will guide future land use activities at the site.

The meeting will give participants an opportunity to review site information, learn about proposed uses, ask questions and provide input on the end-use plan. Written comments also will be accepted.

For more information, contact Frank Uhlarik, Public Works and Utilities, at 402-441-7588 or, or Terry Genrich, Parks and Recreation, at 402-441-7939 or
