Happy Biketober, all! Just wanted to let you know about the Complete Streets Open House from 4-6pm on October 26th at the Bancroft Street Market! Your input on the Complete Streets Design Guide is critical to making Omaha safer for people on bikes as well as all modes of transportation!

If you’re not familiar with complete streets, please check out the City of Omaha’s website to learn more. We are fortunate to have one of the best ranked complete street policies in the country, but without proper implementation strategies, it is just another document in the books! Please come to this important gathering to learn more, provide input, or just show your support to improve our great city!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” 
― Margaret Mead

Complete Streets Open House The City of Omaha and our partners are currently developing a Complete Streets Design Guide as part of our continued efforts to provide a transportation system that works safely and comfortably for all. Its purpose is to help implement our new Complete Streets Policy. The Guide will delineate the needs of people traveling by different means and help prioritize the sometimes competing demands in the design and redesign of our streets. The Guide will also outline public engagement strategies that can support the City’s transportation projects. To aid in the development of the Complete Streets Design Guide, the City is holding a public open house from 4-6 pm on October 26th at the Bancroft Street Market (2702 South 10th Street). At the event, people will be able to provide insight into their varying needs when using streets while walking, bicycling, driving, or using in any other way. The open house also provides an opportunity for those new to the concept of “Complete Streets” to learn about how streets can simultaneously support a range of activities. Learn more about Complete Streets in Omaha at www.completestreetsomaha.org. Please come share in our efforts to make Omaha better. We hope to see you there!

    I would think an open house held after 5pm would generate more interest/feedback for the Complete Streets Design Guide. Holding it during the above hours places it beyond the reach of many who will benefit from its implementation.

    Certainly the timing is a delicate balance. Hopefully, this meeting is the first of many to move this program forward, and future meets may be held a different times and locations for diverse input!
