Omaha is very unique in terms of neighborhood organizing because larger coalitions called neighborhood alliances exist throughout Omaha, where neighborhood association leaders convene. Individual neighborhood associations, united by shared 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 nearby neighborhoods. This framework gives leaders the opportunity to discuss and discover resident demands. All alliance meetings are open to the public. Below is a brief description of each alliance.
