North Platte’s quality growth funds will be used to extend a city street to attract a Fortune 100 business to North Platte, following action Tuesday by the North Platte City Council.

The city council approved a $125,000 grant to extend Twin Rivers Drive, which runs past the Cabela’s Call Center in the industrial park north of State Farm Road.

The stub drive was built to accommodate Cabela’s. It would be extended by about 100 feet if the company commits to come to North Platte and build a logistics distribution center, according to information from Development and Chamber of Commerce Director Dan Mauk.

The name of the company is strictly confidential, Mauk said. The project is referred to as CRESA.

It would be a 24-hour, 365-day operation. A $3 million, 44,000 square foot building would be built, with another $3 million invested in plant and equipment inside, Mauk told Mayor Dwight Livingston in a letter. The building would sit on 8 acres.

The quality growth advisory committee voted unanimously March 26 to recommend the $125,000 grant, if the company commits to North Platte.

The project would retain about 12 unspecified jobs and add another 30 jobs, and they would be good paying jobs, Mauk said in response to a question from the council. 

“It’s a Fortune 100 company,” Mauk said.

 

New tennis courts at Memorial

In other action, the council approved spending $50,000 in Newburn funds to rebuild four tennis courts at Memorial Park. The courts are badly cracked and virtually unusable.

The North Platte Tennis Association is contributing another $17,500 to the project, including a $6,000 grant from the Mid-Plains Community Foundation of North Platte and an estimated donation of $2,500 from the Sexton family, along with contributions from other individuals.

The courts will be fortified and resurfaced and a new fence will be built around them, according to city documents.

Councilman Brook Baker noted that the Newburn fund currently has $89,000 in the treasury, and the cost to renovate the courts will use more than half the available money. Baker voted no, and the expenditure was approved, 5-1.
