Improving Omaha’s Public Facilities
The Public Facilities Plan provides a comprehensive facility inventory of 92 major public facilities which are dispersed throughout the City. These facilities include: community centers, fire facilities, parks maintenance facilities, police facilities, and public works facilities (excluding water and sewer treatment facilities). All other City facilities were excluded from this project, except from the perspective of considering available land and/or potential for co‐location opportunities. The Public Facilities Plan identifies a long-term vision and time-phased plan for disposing of deficient facilities, developing new facilities, consolidation of services, and maintenance of public facilities. The CIP strategically implements the Public Facilities Plan by outlining a 6-year schedule to allocate funds to those projects.
The City continues to work on a comprehensive program to develop a realistic schedule of capital repairs and renovations of its public facilities. Priority is given to projects that ensure safety of the public and employees, bring facilities into or maintain compliance with all applicable codes, decrease operation or maintenance costs, increase the efficient use of existing space, or extend the useful life of City-owned buildings.
