Remembering our Louisville Hardware - Destroyed by Fire 11/1/2011
It is with great sadness that we announce our decision not to rebuild Louisville ACE Hardware.
Please trust that we have not reached this decision lightly.
In the past few years regulations have been put in place by various government entities to protect the general populace. Flood plain levels have increased dramatically, requiring a severely elevated building. The American Disabilities Act has stringent guidelines that must be complied with. The State of Nebraska has a new Energy Initiative that will save millions of dollars on energy costs in the long term, but is an additional cost to new construction.
Unfortunately meeting these regulations would increase already high construction costs, and preclude us from erecting a building that would meet the retail needs of our community. And we have no desire to give you less than you deserve.
We would like to thank all of you for your support over our 22 years of membership in Louisville’s business community. The many expressions of sympathy and concern since the fire have both humbled and sustained us. We have been honored to serve this wonderful area that we are proud to call “Home”.
It is now time for us to look forward. Larry has begun working for the City of Louisville. Maureen has taken a position with Westlake Ace Hardware as a Paint Dept. specialist. Joe is enjoying time at home with his family while looking for a position that will fully utilize his many and varied skills. Taylor is preparing for her senior year at Platteview High School and working at the Louisville Care Community.
Thank you again for your unfailing support and rest assured that you will always be a part of us.

Lower Platte River Summit -- Urban Growth -- Rural Resillence. REGISTER NOW!
Registration for the Lower Platte River Summit continues! The Summit will be held on Tuesday, November 6th at Camp Carol Joy Holling near Ashland, NE. The theme of this year’s Summit is “Urban Growth—Rural Resilience”. Early registration of $20 will be extended to November 1st!
Chuck Schroeder, the Executive Director of the Rural Futures Institute at the University of Nebraska will provide the keynote presentation to begin the day at 9:00 a.m. The keynote will be followed by a facilitated panel discussion that will cover a variety of topics including land use, public health, water supply, water quality, recreation, industry/economic development, and others. Members of the panel will join the audience in participating in “Plainsopoly” which engages individuals in the issues and possibilities of a diverse landscape such as the Lower Platte River Corridor.
Lunch will follow Plainsopoly and then we will head out on a bus tour of unique properties and communities within the Lower Platte River Corridor. Stops will include a working farm in the floodplains and bluffs of the lower Platte River in Sarpy County to and then a stop at Plattsmouth, NE to visit with representatives of their Main Street Association and Historical Society. The event will conclude by 5:30 following some time for hors d’oeurves and time for participants to visit about the day’s events.
