Prairie Queen Pondered as Recreation Area Name

The City of Papillion is pondering a name for the new flood control site northwest of Werner Park.

Right now, it's known as West Papillion Retention Basin and it’s still a work in progress.

The recommendation on the table is to name it the Prairie Queen Recreation Area. Prairie Queen is historically significant. It was the name of a school in the area that dates back to 1884.

The city is expecting the area to eventually boom with development.
