SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - The City of Kimball is in the works of a resort in the near future. This resort will have many amenities like a horse track, casino, spa, and much more. Kimball County is the only county in Nebraska that borders both Colorado and Wyoming, which would bring a unique ability to maximize revenue. This resort has many great things to offer to Kimball and the surrounding areas.

Elyse Schlake Lukassen, Economic Development Coordinator for the City of Kimball, says, “This project would obviously bring a revenue to the community but also bring jobs, a sense of community, because it’s a place people can go. It gives locals something to do, it’s an attraction back for youth wanting to come home to the farm and ranch. Because of the revenue it is going to regenerate for your schools, your hospital, your county and city.. all of the things.”
