Open Public Meeting on November 28
A public meeting about the sanitary sewer project along Lincoln Avenue from 2nd Avenue to 12th Avenue will be held in the Plattsmouth Public Libary auditorium on Monday, November 28. A 10-minute presentation of the project overview will be available at 4:30pm and 6pm. City and engineering officials will be available for questions 4-7pm. The full announcement and map can be found here.
The project is part of a major City Waste Water Improvement Project resulting from the March 2019 flood event. The major project consists of the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant at Fourmile Industrial Park, new pumping stations, and conveyance systems.
The improvements will include removal of the existing Lincoln Avenue pavement, installation of the sanitary sewer pipe, storm sewer installation, water main replacements, and the reconstruction of the Lincoln Avenue pavement along with new sidewalks, driveways, and ADA accessible ramps. Several phases will run from the spring of 2023 with scheduled completion in the fall of 2024.
FEMA and NEMA will pay 95% of the $59.3 million cost. The city's portion is 5% to be issued through a 40-year no-interest loan.

Public Comments Sought
The City of Plattsmouth has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) funding through the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to make repairs to areas flooded in 2019. FEMA is required to consider alternatives and to provide a public notice of any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or wetlands.
The original scope of work was developed to return the dock road, boat ramp, park, and picnic area back to pre-disaster condition. Rather than using eligible FEMA funds to repair the damaged facilities in-kind, and due to the threat of new erosion and damage from minimal flooding, the City of Plattsmouth is requesting three Alternate Projects it believes will better serve the community.
This public notice is regarding the portions of the Alternate Project that consist of a new RV park and a new city park. The other two components of Alternate Projects consist of water main and pavement re-construction in areas not located within the designated floodplain or delineated wetlands. Maps of the affected areas can be found here.
All comments are due by no later than 15 days after the posted date of this notice.

Welcome to Plattsmouth!
Founded in 1854, we are one of Nebraska’s oldest cities. Plattsmouth is rich in history and culture. Situated at the confluence of the Missouri and Platte rivers, Plattsmouth has a place in the discovery of the west. The Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery passed the mouth of the Platte River, just north of what is now Main Street Plattsmouth, on July 21, 1804. Our City seal reads “Honor the Past, Plan for the Future.”
Plattsmouth proudly offers a full range of excellent city services, including police; volunteer fire and rescue; public works which includes water, sewer, streets, parks, and grounds/facilities maintenance. So that we are prepared for the future, we recently expanded the fire and rescue department with a $1.7 million expansion that includes meeting rooms, a kitchen, and sleeper rooms. Our new $5.7 million Senior and Community Center serves more than 1,000 local area citizens who visit more than 12,000 times per week. Twin Rivers Water Park, Rhylander Park, Garfield Park, Memorial Park, and all other parks/recreation facilities and our excellent library add services and lifestyle qualities so that Plattsmouth’s citizens and our visitors have superior places to live, work, and play. In 2011, Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman presented the Showcase Community Award to Plattsmouth for outstanding efforts in the areas of economic development and community revitalization.
We encourage you to use this website to learn about Plattsmouth and to communicate with us.
