The Omaha Downtown Improvement District Association (DID) will conduct a District-wide election to fill nine (9) expired board terms. The vacant terms run for 4 years from April 1, 2021 through March 31, 2025.

The DID was established in 2007 with the mission statement to support, preserve, create and enhance a clean, green, safe and active, competitive and thriving Downtown Omaha that attracts and retains businesses, employees, residents and visitors.

Of the nine (9) terms,
  • Three (3) must be filled with a resident (renter) of the District,
  • Two (2) must be a business tenant within the District, and
  • Four (4) must be a property owner (one (1) from each of the four wards)

Persons interested in becoming members of the DID Board of Directors should return the candidate application forms to the DID office by October 1, 2020.
