The Nebraska City City Council unanimously approved going forward with fundraising for proposed soccer and ball field improvements on property west of Wyuka Cemetery.The council held a public hearing on the project during its Monday, March 18, meeting. Residents spoke for nearly two hours for and against the plan.Steve Baltensperger of the Nebraska City Youth Soccer Club expressed his appreciation for the work the Nebraska City Cemetery Board has done on the project thus far."There is no perfect solution," said Baltensperger. He noted that the land is essentially sitting there unused and that about 15 acres would remain for cemetery use before the soccer and ball fields would have to be removed."The community can do both the cemetery expansion and the ball fields that are urgently needed," said Baltensperger, who asked the council to support the project.

Nebraska City Cemetery Board all voted ”No” to this issue. The expansion of the ”Bandaid” soccer field will cost the city $800,000. This $800,000 could be more spent effectively, such as a permanent placement for the community of Nebraska City to grow positively and for the future. Please sign this Petition to say ”No, to the ”Bandaid” soccer field.”
