Notice is hereby given that the Omaha City Council has set Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. as the date of Public Hearing on the Resolution approving an Extremely Blighted Area (EBA) Designation.

The general boundaries of the study area are as follows:

East      48th Street/47th Avenue south to Fort Street, then west to 52nd Street, then south to west on Ames Avenue to 40th Street south to Pratt Street; and Northwest Drive and Boyd Street

An EBA designation allows for state income tax credit for qualified homebuyers, special funding preferences to affordable housing developers, and a maximum of 20 years for the use of TIF for approved redevelopment projects. The City was approached by a development team to consider an EBA Designation for the former Wintergreen Apartment site and adjacent parcels. The developer plans to transform the area into an affordable, single-family housing development.

The study for this EBA designation calculated the average unemployment rate and average poverty rate of seven selected Census block groups. The average rate of poverty for the study area was 26.13%, which exceeds the 20% threshold. The average rate of unemployment within the study area was 7.46%, which exceeds the 6.68% threshold that is 200% of the state unemployment rate.

The Planning Board recommended approval of this Redevelopment Project Plan at the August 4, 2021 public hearing.

A copy of said plan is available for public inspection in the City Clerk’s Office.

The Public Hearing will be held before the City Council of the City of Omaha on September 21, 2021, in the Legislative Chambers, Omaha/Douglas Civic Center, 1819 Farnam Street, Omaha, Nebraska.
