Jul 9, 2013 — from Marc Trautrimas, Omaha
Let's support the build up of areas like this house is located in. These walking neighborhoods which are closer to a more viable and healthier midtown and downtown need our help. Federal tax break programs exist for these renovation purposes after landmark status is developed. Our neighboring states: Iowa, Kansas and Missouri have state programs that match the Federal tax breaks, they got with the program! It's very profitable at the small business level, but Nebraska unfortunately has no such matching fund yet, it's a darn shame. It is so vitally important and healthy to maintain and respect our past. The western expansion of Omaha has been a travesty for this city and only benefits developers pockets.
