Riverfront Revitalization Update
Community leaders from Omaha and Council Bluffs are working together with government officials and stakeholders to improve both sides of the Missouri River. Please join us for an update on the master plan for areas in and around Gene Leahy Mall, Heartland of America Park and Lewis and Clark Landing in Omaha. The Gene Leahy Mall between Douglas and Farnam Streets has closed so the mall can be raised to street level. New amenities and public spaces will follow as part of a sweeping $290 million revamp that includes trails, an urban beach and play areas along a 90-acre swath of downtown Omaha. Katie Bassett
, Vice President of Parks for the Metropolitan Entertainment & Convention Authority, oversees the progress and operations of downtown Omaha’s riverfront redevelopment project, and will be presenting the Riverfront Revitalization Update.
