If you’ve ever wanted to engage in a discussion about Omaha’s urban design and find out how it affects our community’s equal opportunity and social mobility, plan on attending next Wednesday’s Public VOICE Meeting.

This is your chance to listen, learn, ask questions, and join in the dialogue about the future design — both concrete and communal — of our city.
