Papillion and LaVista
Papillion and LaVista
La Vista is currently one of the fastest growing cities in the State of Nebraska. It is a relatively young and progressive city situated southwest of the Omaha metropolitan area contiguous to the cities of Bellevue, Ralston, Papillion and Omaha.
Strategically located only minutes from Offutt Air Force Base, Eppley Airfield and the interstate system, La Vista has grown quickly to a community of nearly 17,000. “La Vista” is Spanish for “The View”, which described the scenic panorama of the Big Papio Creek Basin that was enjoyed by the City’s first residents. La Vista was incorporated in 1960.
Since 1998, the City has platted over 900 acres of residential subdivisions, 300 acres of commercial property and 800 acres of industrial business parks. La Vista has become home to a number of market leading businesses because of its location and commitment of the Mayor and City Council to envision the City’s future in partnership with its corporate citizens.
