Papillion’s City Council unanimously approved council ward changes during Tuesday night’s meeting.

In July Papillion annexed Eagle Hills, Eagle Ridge, Eagle Crest, Riverchase and Walnut Creek Estates as well as industrial and data center areas in southwest Papillion along Highway 50.

The annexations added more than 3,600 residents and 1,200 households, according to city documents.

For newly annexed residents to be eligible to vote in the spring’s primary elections, the Sarpy County election commissioner needed to have the approved boundaries by Dec. 11. The boundaries are effective Nov. 20.

The new ward boundaries, generally, are as follows:

  • Ward 1 extends to the eastern edge of the city south of Cornhusker Road, and also includes two pockets north of Cornhusker around 72nd Street.
  • Ward 2 is bounded by Highway 370 on the south and Cornhusker on the north, Washington Street (84th Street) on the west and 60th Street on the east.
  • Ward 3 is areas within city limits south of Highway 370 between 108th and 72nd Streets, and also includes the area north of 370 but south of Lincoln Road between 90th and Washington Streets.
  • Ward 4 covers all of western Papillion’s city limits, and most of its changes to boundaries are on its eastern borders with the other three wards.

Papillion previously changed ward boundaries in 2017 when it annexed the Cottonwood subdivision.
