The Downtown Improvement District Wants Your Input!

The Downtown Improvement District invites you to the following public meeting to hear what is happening in Downtown Omaha and to share your thoughts on upcoming improvements:

16th Street Visioning Session

As part of the effort to improve the 16th Street Corridor, the Omaha Downtown Improvement District Association (DID), along with HDR Engineering Inc., will host a community visioning session for 16th Street on Tuesday, September 1, 2009, 5:30-8:30 p.m., in the Brandeis Building cafeteria, 210 South 16th Street. The public is invited to attend.

The session will start with an overview of the 16th Street Corridor Re-Development Conceptual Plan, results of stakeholder interview responses, an overview of similar corridor re-design efforts, followed by a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) Analysis and a Geographic Mapping exercise. The Geographic Mapping exercise allows participants the opportunity to describe their vision for the corridor.

Participants will be grouped around tables to help interact during these exercises. The primary goal is to establish a vision for the 16th Street corridor that runs from Dodge to Leavenworth Streets.
