Do you live in downtown Omaha? If so, Bradley Bereitschaft needs your help.

Dr. Bereitschaft, an assistant professor of geography at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, is conducting a study to understand why residents have chosen to live downtown rather than elsewhere in the Greater Omaha area.

His online survey,, takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey, you will be asked to indicate your willingness to take part in a brief interview that will take place at a later date.

Dr. Bereitschaft said he hopes to use the information gained from the study to identify real and practical ways to enhance the livability of downtown Omaha.
