In partnership with the Nebraska City Community Prosperity Initiative’s Tourism, Arts, Recreation, and Trails (T.A.R.T.) focus group, UNL College of Architecture Collaborative Studio will spend 15 weeks over the upcoming fall semester developing short- and long-term design projects based on a community developed vision for Nebraska City’s riverfront.
The public is invited to a kick-off community meeting Tuesday, August 28, from 6-8 p.m. at the Rowe Safety Complex Community Room to help define and co-create the vision, goals, and priorities for this exciting project. Anyone who has interest, hopes, and dreams for the future of Nebraska City’s riverfront s well as those who are simply curious or interested in getting more involved in the community is invited to join the group for an interactive evening of conversation and visioning.
The Nebraska City Community Prosperity Initiative (CPI) originated in March of 2017 with support from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension and the Rural Futures Institute. The pilot effort is intended to support successful communities as they 1) evolve a community-wide focus on longer-term prosperity visions and action planning, 2) build strong community integrated development capacity, and 3) leverage University and non-University resources. Nebraska City’s CPI effort now includes four volunteer-led sub-committees focused on People & Education, Economic Development, Housing, and Tourism, Arts, Recreation, & Trails (T.A.R.T.).
