North Omaha Block Talks Training

As part of our ongoing North Omaha Neighborhood Leadership Series, we will be hosting a Block Talk Training on Saturday, February 23rd at the Charles B. Washington Library (2868 Ames Avenue) from 10am to 12:30pm.

Block Talk Training is a workshop that trains neighborhood leaders on a process of measuring walkability, livability, and accessibility of an area based on elements of design, infrastructure, condition, safety, attractiveness, and place. Neighbors participate in a one-mile facilitated walk measuring these elements, and then create short and long-term project, program, and policy goals for the their neighborhood. This process can be replicated for parks, vacant lots, business districts, and any other aspects neighborhood leaders wish to plan around.

You do not need to have previously registered for the Leadership Series to attend. You can register for this training here.
