Blueprint Nebraska to Hold Public Town Halls in Lincoln, Omaha and Norfolk

December 12, 2018 - 2:21pm

Three public town hall forums will be held in various locations across eastern Nebraska next week. They’re part of an effort called Blueprint Nebraska, a citizen-led economic development initiative with leaders from business, agriculture, government and higher education.

Topics likely to be discussed at the town hall events include the creation of more jobs in Nebraska, tax policies and more housing options for the growing population.

Jim Smith, director of Blueprint Nebraska and former state senator, said the importance of these town halls should not be overlooked.

“The concept is to bring together business minds from across the state to map out what Nebraska’s economic future looks like, and how do we put Nebraska on the path to success," Smith said. "For this to be truly successful, and for it to be truly statewide, we really need to hear the voices of Nebraskans at these town halls. So we really encourage people to attend.”

The town halls will take place in Norfolk, Omaha and Lincoln on Wednesday, December 19. They are free and open to the public, no registration required.

Lincoln: 8 - 10 a.m CT at Southeast Community College, 8800 O Street, Lincoln NE

Omaha: 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. CT at UNO's Scott Conference center, 6450 Pine St. Omaha, NE
