York County Commissioners Discuss Quiet Zone and Downtown Revitalization Projects

YORK, Neb. – The City of York came before the York County Commissioner’s Tuesday morning to talk about the long-awaited Quiet Zone Project.

Burlington Northern Santa Fe contacted the City of York and said the notice of intent needed to come from York County because one of the crossing is not within the city limits. That crossing is located on County Road 14 in the northeast corner of York.

Public Works Director for the City of York, Mitch Doht, said there have been a few changes since the last time they had met.

There was one question that was raised by the commissioners, will farming equipment be able to fit through the crossing? An important question with Central Valley Ag being so close to the crossing. Doht said the proposed width of the crossing will be 55 feet with a raised median on the middle. Most ag equipment is no more than 50 feet wide.

The commissioners voted to table the action until more information was gathered.


YORK, Neb. – Being the heart of downtown York, the Courthouse Square is one of the most intriguing parts of the concepts for York’s upcoming Downtown Revitalization Project.

Madonna Mogul and Rhonda Veleba with the York Chamber of Commerce, Rian Harkins with the Southeast Nebraska Development District, and Karen Nalow with The Clark Enerson Partners, were all present at Tuesday’s York County Commissioners meeting to talk about the project. Specifically, if the county is interested in a partnership.

The commissioners saw it as a great step forward for downtown York. However, the item was tabled for more discussion.

The city hopes to wrap up Phase I by the first part of September, so they can begin the application process for Phase II, which is the implementation process. Phase II could grant as much as $350,000 toward York’s Downtown Revitalization Project.
