A group is holding a public discussion ahead of a committee meeting of the Douglas County Board concerning its juvenile justice center proposal.
It’s from 7 to 8 p.m. Monday at the University of Nebraska Omaha’s Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center .
Organizers are hoping people present questions and explore alternative options which they will later present to the Douglas County Board.
The meeting follows concerns over eminent domain use for a building located at the proposed site, financing and overall operations of the juvenile justice center.
The board’s Administrative Services Committee will hold its meeting Thursday at 1 p.m. It’s expected it will highlight strategic planning and the juvenile court’s space needs.
In the aftermath of a heated debate between the board and building owner Bob Perrin, a self-guided building tour is scheduled for people wanting to see it. It’s Sunday, Aug. 12 from 1 to 4 p.m.
