OMAHA MISSING MIDDLE HOUSING CAMPAIGN

WHO ARE WE?

  • A grassroots campaign comprised of community members passionate about creating a more sustainable, equitable, and vibrant Omaha.
  • Find details to attend campaign meetings on our Facebook page.

OBJECTIVE

A City Council vote for strategic amendments to Omaha's zoning code allowing missing middle housing in higher density residential zones and along 7-day service Omaha Metro routes.

OMAHA'S ZONING CODE

  • Last significant update was made in 1987.
  • Perpetuates history of racially discriminatory "redlining" policies.
  • Makes McMansions in suburbia easy to build and modest homes in sustainable neighborhoods difficult.

What will re-legalizing 'missing middle' home choices mean for Omaha?

AFFORDABILITY

Diverse home sizes and prices to meet unique needs at every stage of life.

AGE FRIENDLY HOUSING

Allows seniors to age-in-place and stay in their neighborhoods.

COMMUNITY

Inclusionary neighborhoods which preserve community character by prioritizing people-oriented development.

TRANSIT VIABILITY

Housing along transit creating walkable, sustainable neighborhoods and reducing transportation cost burdens.
