A lot of new community projects are coming into the area! On today’s episode, Chris Bruns, the chairman of the Board of Lincoln County Commissioners, joins us to discuss some of these community developments. Continuing our conversation about the new rail park proposal, Chris shares why projects like this need support.
Last year in the legislature, a bill was passed allowing Nebraska to have five inland port authorities. Chris is spearheading a port authority project himself. One problem we’ve seen with our current supply chain is land-locked logistics issues.
An inland port could address these problems, while also attracting multinational firms to our area. The goal would be to have an inland port authority district, which we hope to encompass the new rail park. We’ll also discuss the possibility of a new golf course, housing issues in Lincoln County, Chris’ bid for the legislature, and more.
Join us today as we further discuss:
· Why projects like the rail park and inland port authority are important
· Why our location can be competitive for this project with the rail park
· The exciting new golf course being built
· How we can address the housing issues in Lincoln County
· Chris’ background in the Marines and running for the legislature
