OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Douglas County officials have delayed approval of a couple’s plans to build a drive-in movie theater on farmland west of Omaha.
The Omaha World-Herald reports the county board Tuesday expressed enthusiasm for the plan by Jeff and Jen Karls to build the drive-in off Nebraska Highway 36 between Valley and Fremont. They plan to show movies on weekends from May through September.
But the officials delayed action on a special-use permit request until the couple can talk with neighbors about their concerns.
Keith and Tanner Hoffman, a father and son who farm nearby, questioned how the drive-in’s land would drain and whether roads could handle increased traffic. If the venture failed, they asked what would happen to the venture.
