Elk Creek Crossing is located in Omaha, Nebraska, within Douglas County, at 162nd St. on the East to 168th Street on the West, from W. Maple Rd. on the South to Ames Avenue on the North. It is within the Omaha Public School District (OPS): Standing Bear Elementary, Buffett Middle School & Burke High School. The City of Omaha annexed Elk Creek Crossing on August 15, 2007, which terminated the existence of the Sanitation Improvement District (SID). As such, the City has assumed most SID responsibilities, including SID debts. Home property taxes decreased following annexation.
The Homeowner’s Association (HOA) remains in effect, and continues its neighborhood legal standing, pursuant to the Elk Creek Crossing Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, Declarations of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. The HOA continues enforcement of covenants, conditions and restrictions set forth in these documents to maintain neighborhood upkeep & overall aesthetic appearance of Elk Creek Crossing.
Since annexation, the city sales tax of 1.5% was added to the state sales tax of 5.5% – increasing Elk Creek Crossing’s sales tax to 7%. Instead of Sheriff’s deputies prior to being annexed, now when there is a 911 emergency call, the Omaha police are the responders. P.J. Morgan Real Estate is paid an annual fee for management. See the annual budget report for pay rate.
The area boasts 426 single family homes.
Residents love living here. The neighborhood, as a whole, prides itself on keeping public & private property – aesthetically pleasing. The park is well-maintained and includes a family friendly playground, benches to sit on, a covered picnic area & two (2) basketball hoops. North of the Park is a trail that extends all the way to the Hillsborough neighborhood north of 144th and West Maple Road. West of the main entrance on approximately 165th & Maple along North Branch Drive, is a bike path that residents can use to enjoy a leisurely walk, bike ride or stroll along on in-line skates & scooters. Covenants that remain in effect assure residents and potential residents alike that the community maintains high standards while protecting individual property investments.
