Council approves new green plan for Omaha

The Omaha City Council voted 7-0 on Dec. 14 to approve a comprehensive new environmental plan that proposes changes to everything from how and where new buildings are constructed to luring developers to older areas of the city with new tax perks . Environment Omaha, a collaboration between the city and Omaha by Design, spent two years working on the plan that includes such goals as: reducing per-capita energy and water consumption by 20 percent by 2020; slowing suburban development to make Omaha a more compact and densely populated city; reducing reliance on cars through mixed-use development and new forms of public transit; and integrating distinct natural resources and views into new building construction and public spaces. The city has yet to set a time frame for implementing the plan.
