New aquatic center now open

May 30, 2012

It’s been seven years in the making, and it is finally here ... Broken Bow’s new aquatic center is now open, and ready for business.

Those involved are excited.

“I just love it,” said swimming pool manager Jenna Smith. “It is more user friendly for our younger crowd. At one end the pool starts at zero depth, the old pool started at 3 feet."

City Manager Tony Tolstedt echoes the praises, emphasizing that there is something for everyone, all ages.

May 30, 2012

The Broken Bow landscape is in for a change. By the next snowfall, 50 wind turbines will peak their heads into the clouds along the ridge line northeast of the community.

The $145 million wind project, known as Broken Bow Wind LLC, didn’t happen overnight, it’s been years in the making. The wind farm is owned and operated by Edison Mission Group and when online, will be capable of generating up to approximately 80 megawatts of electricity, enough energy to meet the needs of about 25,000 homes.

This is EMG’s third wind energy project in Nebraska.
