Omaha's Design Board Throws a Wrench in Revitalization
Matt Miller writes, "The redesign of downtown Omaha's run-down 16th Street is going back to the drawing board amid concerns that the proposal would fail to revitalize the corridor.
The project had seemed to be gaining momentum, winning buy-in from 16th Street's major tenants and private interests.
But the project hit a buzzsaw this month when it went before a new city board with oversight on urban design issues. In the end, the board authorized the plans to move forward - only on the condition that the plans change."
