Forever North to Benefit N 24th Street Corridor Development

The City of Omaha has begun a housing market and multimodal transportation study for the North 24th Street Corridor - an area rich in history and bounded by Highway 75, Ames Avenue, 20th Street, and Cuming Street. The purpose of the study is to create a development strategy that helps move the area forward while respecting the past.

Forever North opened offices at The Union for Contemporary Art and Great Plains Black History Museum to conduct surveys, workshops, and coordination with community members and stakeholders. City planners hope to build from previous plans and studies, such as the North Omaha Village Revitalization Plan and the Village Square Development Plan in order to craft strategies for development and accommodating multiple modes of transportation, thoughtfully consider corridor history and culture, and identify early action projects.
