There are an estimated 190 neighborhood associations within the Omaha metropolitan area, which fall within five neighborhood organizations known as as neighborhood alliances. Individual neighborhood associations united by geography come together for a macro-view of their area of the city.
The neighborhood alliances serve as community forums where neighborhood associations can share their concerns, best practices and current initiatives. They are also an opportunity to undertake collaborative projects between neighborhoods in close proximity. This framework gives neighborhoods the opportunity to discuss and discover resident demands. All alliance meetings are open to the public. Below is detailed information about each neighborhood alliance and how to get involved.
Midtown Neighborhood Alliance
The Midtown Neighborhood Alliance (MNA) is an alliance of midtown neighborhood associations whose common mission is to preserve the integrity of and advocate for a vibrant community that is sustainable, secure, diverse, historically rich and economically strong. The MNA advocates before city government on behalf of neighborhoods, awards yearly mini grants, recognizes exceptional landlords, and restores and maintains the tree canopy in midtown through the Midtown Retree Program.
