Omaha by Design Mayoral Candidate Forum

WHEN: Tuesday, April 25th at 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: Omaha Community Playhouse

With the April 4th primaries behind us, the general elections for Omaha Mayor are scheduled for Tuesday, May 9th. In the mayoral election, Mayor Jean Stothert and challenger Former Nebraska State Senator Heath Mello both address urban design and policy issues as part of their campaign platforms. As part of an effort to inform voters and to give the candidates an opportunity to focus on important issues of urban design and policy, Omaha by Design is hosting the 2017 Forum. Questions will look at overarching issues, such as the vision for the planning, design, and development future of Omaha; the mayor’s role in equitable growth and development throughout our metro region; and how our urban infrastructure can be developed and maintained equitably and sustainably. The event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6pm.

Details of the candidate’s positions can be found on the “Issues” pages of their campaign websites: http://www.jeanstothert.com/
