This plan involves no dam, just a sandpit lake, causing a more positive reaction throughout the community and with nearby residents.
There is a housing boom in Ashland and commercial property is selling two or three times its value. Ashland's small-town charm and proximity to Omaha and Lincoln make it a very attractive community to live in. The proposed lake could be great for local businesses in the area.
It's estimated the proposed lake could still be a decade away.
