Affordable Housing Action Plan Open House

Residents are invited to an Affordable Housing Action Plan Open House Thursday, August 31 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers. The affordable housing action plan is in response to the lack of affordable housing in many Nebraska municipalities, and the plan assists municipalities putting a plan forward. 

The Nebraska Legislature put in place a requirement for cities with a population of less than fifty thousand inhabitants to adopt an affordable housing action plan on or before January 1, 2024. Some topics to be discussed include examining and updating zoning codes and ordinances to permit varied types of housing stock, provide greater availability of affordable housing, and promote more efficient and effective land use.

If you have any questions, please contact Planning and Development at 402-844-2280.
