Around Omaha

UNMC plans to raze three vacant houses near 44th and Leavenworth and build green space and parking in their place. The houses were bought two years ago.


La Vista-based biotech firm Streck builds 84 units of affordable housing for its employees. The company didn’t seek a subsidy or financing for the $15 million project.


Memorial Park is getting its first major renovation since its opening 75 years ago with a 2,500-square-foot plaza.


Upcoming Events

Be sure to get the updated booster shot before heading to any of these events.


Around Nebraska

Legislature: 

  • The Legislature gives final-round approval to permitless concealed carry, with Gov. Jim Pillen expected to sign the bill. Following the vote, the executive director of Nebraskans Against Gun Violence yelled “shame” from the gallery and has since been banned from the Capitol.
  • Concerns arise over the state Board of Health’s decision to release a statement in favor of banning gender-affirming care for minors, something that critics say goes against the tradition of its neutrality.

Students from Omaha Nation High School visit the Genoa Indian Boarding School, an event their teacher describes as coming full circle — ancestors were forced to attend the school and now students are visiting on their own accord.
