We Need Your Story! | Omaha At A Human Scale

As we turn the corner into the final months of 2018, we would like to invite the community to share their experiences of the city at “human scale.” This is in contrast to how much of the city is built and how most people experience moving through the environment: automotive scale. We will be highlighting joys and challenges of using active transportation modes in Omaha and the experience of encountering the environment at human scale. Check out our first post in this blog series, A Tale about a Bench and over 150 gallons of trash with Cindy Teft
