27 Sep

The Citizens’ Academy for Omaha’s Future – a program we co-developed and co-facilitate with LiveWell, MAPA, and the Douglas County Health Department, is taking applications now for its next class that will start Oct. 1. Participants will learn how different values and decisions shape the built environment of Omaha. The workshops will include topics on planning, transportation, the development process, land use, and community health. Guest speakers will emphasize when and how the public can impact the development process. Tuition is $50 and includes supper at each of the six 3-hour workshops. Workshops are held on Thursdays from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. Click here for more information.
