(Neb.)- Nebraska Guard Ready To Build Armory At Air Force Base

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 07/04/2019 02:41 PM
OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska National Guard officials say the guard is leasing space on a U.S. Air Force base south of Omaha for a new armory.
 
     The guard's Col. Shane Martin says what will be called the Bellevue Readiness Center will include office space, a drill floor, a large kitchen, maintenance bays for guard vehicles and an elevated classroom.
 
     It will cover 130,000 square feet at a cost of $29 million. The 38-acre parcel is on the site of a former housing area at Offutt Air Force Base.
 
     The Omaha World-Herald reports that federal funding for the project hasn't been approved in the final Pentagon budget in the past two federal fiscal years and could be pushed back again.
