A series of meetings on the City of Omaha's Transit Oriented Development Initiative begins next week

The purpose of the Transit Oriented Development initiative is to review and develop new land use policies to ensure the most is made out of the ORBT (Omaha Rapid Bus Transit) investment. This initiative includes two major steps: propose potential amendments to the City's Master Plan to support and encourage Transit Oriented Development and develop and propose Transit Oriented Development regulations for the Zoning Ordinance.

These are the second in a series of two public meetings that focus on potential Transit Oriented Development regulations or guidelines for new development up to 1/2 mile from the new ORBT station locations. The meetings are geographically focused to discuss specific areas.
