Hawaiian Village is an 80 acre sand base lake community of about 190 homes, ranging in price from $250,000-$425,000. It is just 5 miles south of Papillion, Nebraska located within SID #97 and has easy access to Omaha, Bellevue, and Lincoln. It's a little bit country, but only 10 minutes from city life. School buses take the children back and forth, and the community has sand volleyball leagues in the summer, there are tennis courts, Platte River view walking trails, and a very active Social Committee with fun seasonal events that include an annual luau picnic, Fall, Winter and Spring festivals. There are covenants, by-laws, safety and restrictions for the lake and surrounding commons area that are governed by the Hawaiian Village Lake Association who sponsors the social committee activities and the annual 4th of July Fireworks show for the residents. New this summer will be our own lake version of the "Drive-In Movies" but with a "Boat-In" option at our residence's beach. The association fees are under $180 per year and it's great here for swimming, fishing, boating, water sports, kayaking, skiing, along with winter fun such as ice skating and ice fishing, hockey, snowmobiling, cross country skiing with fun, sports and Nature loving for all ages. You have it all here at Hawaiian Village!
Welcome to the Village! To help you transition to the lake, here is some helpful information from the Hawaiian Village Board.

Here is some helpful information from the SID Board:
Sanitary and Improvement District (SID) 97 is charged with maintaining the infrastructure of Hawaiian Village. The SID pays for road repair, mowing and maintenance of the Commons Area, street lighting, sewer and water delivery systems via your tax dollar. The SID also operates a waste water treatment facility and public well system and is one of the very few districts in the Tri-County area to do so. The SID owns the lake, commonly referred to as Outlot E and leases it to the home owner’s association (HVLA) for $1 per year.
The SID accomplishes all this while maintaining one of the lowest mill levies in Sarpy County. The current mill levy is set at .52 per $100 of evaluation. This level was established in 2001 and the most recent increase was in 2008-2009.
Our water is not chlorinated or fluorinated and contains a high level of manganese. Manganese does not pose a health risk to humans or animals and our monthly well tests are routinely well within State of Nebraska parameters. You will find our water stains your sidewalks and the siding of your home a dark brown or rust color. You should direct your sprinklers away from these areas to prevent discoloration. If you use a product containing chlorine when washing clothes, your white clothes will probably turn yellow. The high manganese content also shortens the expected life of water heaters. Most homes have whole house water filters. The filters might need to be cleaned or replaced more often than the manufacturer recommends.
SID 97 requires all homes to be equipped with water meters. We began charging a flat fee for water in January of 2004. In January of 2005, we began charging based on usage. The rate as of May 1, 2010 is $1.25 up to 10,000 gallons used; $1.50 10,001 to 40,000 gallons,; $1.75 40,001 to 70,000 gallons and $2.00 on anything about 70,001 gallons. The average increase is $4.20 per month. Meters are read on the last day of the month. Payment is due by the 20th of the next month. The sewer use charge is $18.75 per month and there is a $6.25 monthly customer fee that covers meter reading, bill processing, bank charges and state tax. In the winter, a typical household’s water/sewer bill is in the $30 to $35 range or somewhat higher based on the number of people in your family.
Never allow harmful chemicals to enter the sewer system. Personal hygiene products, rags, and cleaning products that claim to be flushable do not biodegrade quickly enough for our small system to handle. They form clogs that break pumps and other mechanical equipment. Please find an alternate means of disposing of these products.
Urban utilities operates our Public Water System and Waste Water Treatment Plant and also provides billing service for those facilities. If you experience problems with water pressure or sewer related issues or if you have a question about your water bill, you can contact one of the current Board Members listed or Rene Nelson of Urban Utilites directly at his office (402) 296-5409 or his cell phone (402) 618-2138 or his pager (402) 271-1908.
