Reimagining north Omaha - Omaha.com

I think this plan is good, so long as the also revitalize the people too and not just push them out like can so often happen. But, if everything goes as plan this will be a great project for the whole city.

I hope they aren't trying to get people from out of the NO area to move there. They kind of did that with Midtown Crossing and now that place is looking a lot more upscale so it doesn't serve the people of the area well, just those that have moved directly into Midtown Crossing above a good financial pillow. So I'm hoping for a development more on par with the people of the area. Maybe instead of Wohlners as a grocery anchor, get a NoFrill's Fresh market to move in. I like how exclusive urban infill projects are, I just hope in the future, the retail tenants become a little less unique and exclusive to better serve the people that already inhabit the area.

Sounds good in theory, but as previously mentioned, wouldn't this just be gentrification? The current residents would be forced to lower income areas, and this will be bought out ny yuppies changing the whol feel and history of the neighborhood.

I hope they embrace the AA community and also have plans for the development of decent jobs in that area as well. Honestly I go to that area, during the day, to the Community Cafe and it's not that rough looking considering joblessness rate and violence there.

Good to see they are finally working to develop other areas of the city. And as mentioned I hope that they do not "rejuvinate" in the same manner they did midtown crossing driving up the market in a low/middle class area.

Yes, I hope they can keep with the people of the area, because yes, it would be just stupid to think that you can plop an upperclass dwelling right in the middle of a "bad area" and expect people to move in. However, I'm not worried at all about preservation of History. There's no value in an empty lot that used to be home to housing projects.

Great way to help north Omaha is to get most of the people off the welfare, free housing, food-stamps and free everything else and get them to work for a living. IF you do that maybe some day they could afford to live in the developed areas that are planned.

no jobs, very little economical development in that area. and remember we are talking about generations of such.

my other question is this: aren't there some new development/townhomes houses on 24th that they could not sell already? I thought I remembered reading about that last summer.
