What We Do

Omaha by Design works across the metro to enable and inspire a built environment that unleashes the full potential of its cities and citizens. We do this by convening, educating, advocating, and encouraging engagement in the topics which physically shape the metro.

Our work is designed to engage and educate the broader public on the choices available for our city’s future. We do so with an all-new, approachable and inspirational website, all-ages social media challenges, speaking engagements, and experiential community events. We leverage our role as the metro’s hub for urban design conversations, where we advocate tirelessly for development which benefits all users. Finally, we advance solutions to long-term issues such as housing affordability, equitable land use and accessible transportation systems.
