A planned arena for the University of Nebraska at Omaha has the Omaha City Council's unanimous support. Now the city just has to find a way to pay for its share.
“The devil's in the details,” said Larry Jobeun, a real estate attorney representing the university. That includes plans for traffic and parking around the $76 million arena near Aksarben Village, not to mention funding millions of dollars worth of city-financed infrastructure around the site.
