Dear EAA families,
My name is Joe Greco, and as the new Director of Strategic Priorities and Development, I wanted to personally thank you for your support of the 6,000+ young athletes participating across eight activities in the Elkhorn Athletic Association. As an Omaha native and parent of EAA athletes in multiple sports, I am excited for the next chapter of youth sports in the Greater Omaha Area and beyond, specifically the completion of the MD West ONE Sports Complex.
With regard to the complex, I am happy to share many great updates that put us on track for groundbreaking in the next few weeks. Major updates include:
--142 acres of land near 264th and Ida streets has been purchased. With convenient access just off Highway 275, the area is primed for growth and the perfect home for our complex.
--Newly added founding partners to the MD West ONE Sports Complex include:
--Boys Town Pediatrics as the all play field partner on a 10-year agreement
--H&H Automotive as the parking lot sponsor on a 5-year agreement
--For a complete list of Founding Partners see the website: MD West One Sport Complex
--Construction management for the complex has been awarded to MCL Construction with design and engineering services provided by Lamp Rynearson. Field construction company will be Nemaha Sports Construction. As local industry leaders, MCL, Nemaha and Lamp Rynearson bring an unmatched level of experience and expertise to the project.
--Complex signage is being fabricated and installed in the next few weeks. Look for the “Future home of the MD West ONE Sports Complex” sign soon!
EAA has also qualified for a state-level matching grant that, if awarded, would double your contribution to the complex. Now is the time to join us in reaching our challenge goal of $10,000,000 toward phase one of construction.
