HOLISTIC NEIGHBORHOOD REVITALIZATION - DEER PARK

DeerParkLogo

Housing & Community Development focuses its efforts primarily in the older neighborhoods of Northeast and Southeast Omaha. Since 2014, we have worked with community partners to focus efforts on a specific “targeted” neighborhood, and to do so for a period of approximately two years. During that two-year timeframe, HCD and its partners hope to benefit as many households as possible. In so doing, we attempt to affect the neighborhood’s overall belief in its own future. Those not affected directly nevertheless witness beneficial changes in the neighborhood and perhaps invest their own resources in ways that further that beneficial change. To put it another way: A new “standard” of neighborhood pride and care is created, and then, hopefully, furthered and maintained not only by those touch directly but by those touched indirectly, as well. The targeted neighborhood from 2016-2017 was in Deer Park.
