At our last public VOICE meeting, you voted on issues that are most important to you, ranking smart urban design and equal opportunity/social mobility as your top two concerns. Did you know that these two things are inextricably linked? The next public VOICE meeting, which will take place on Wednesday, December 9th at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, will explore the relationship between these two things — specifically how the proposed beltway might affect Omaha’s culture and community. Meeting details will be provided in the next newsletter, but you can expect an incredible panel of speakers, a riveting discussion about Omaha’s future, and an opportunity for you to ask questions and share your own thoughts. Please note that the date has been moved to Wednesday, December 9 so we could accommodate our panelists’ schedules. VOICE members of all ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. See you there!

The greater our numbers, the greater our involvement, the greater our VOICE!
