Papillion’s most aggressive annexation in its history now awaits approval of the City Council.
A public hearing was held during the July 2 Papillion City Council meeting as the city’s proposed annexation consists of five SIDs as well as two industrial areas in the western part of Sarpy County.
The annexation will go before a final vote during the Tuesday meeting.
There was no opposition met during the public hearing. Representatives from two subdivisions (Eagle Hills and Riverchase) did speak and each said the annexations are being met with complete support from their respective SIDs.
If approved, the annexation will take effect 15 days after approval.
The annexed areas are the subdivisions of Eagle Hills, Eagle Ridge, Eagle Crest, Riverchase and Walnut Creek Estates as well as the industrial areas of Oxbow Way and Schram Road, and Highway 50 subdivision. Oxbow Way is where Omaha Box Company is located while the Schram and Highway 50 area will be the home to the new data center, currently known as Project Wizard.
The proposed annexation would add 3,266 residents and 1,265 households.
The total valuation of the annexed area is estimated at $345 million. The city would inherit $7.6 million in debt.
