Omaha Avenue/Hwy 275 Design Open House

The City of Norfolk was selected to partner with Kansas State University Technical Assistance to Brownfields (TAB) and the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional and Community Planning Program to generate ideas for revitalization of underutilized areas in Norfolk. 

One group of students focused on property formerly occupied by the Norfolk Stockyard and the former Tyson facility (North of Monroe Ave between South 1st Street and Industrial Road). The other group focused on a study area along Omaha Ave (US-275) between Pasewalk Ave and South Chestnut Street. A map of the two study areas can be found on the City website ( and social media pages.

Planning and design concepts will be presented at an Open House on November 18th and November 19th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Due to COVID-19, the meeting will be held virtually via Zoom. If you are unable to participate online, you can attend in person at the City Council Chambers at 309 N. 5th Street in Norfolk.
