Health Department Offers Walking Concierge
Downtown Omaha will be bustling in the coming weeks, and the Douglas County Health Department has an idea to help you make the most of downtown, while adding in some movement of your own.
The Walking Concierge is your handy, portable guide to getting errands done while youâ€™re downtown. Did you know that First National Tower has a Hallmark store that also does dry cleaning? Did you know that both Union Pacific and Alegent Creighton Health have pharmacies downtown that are open to the public? Thatâ€™s where the Walking Concierge comes in!
â€śWith more people living downtown, more amenities have opened up,â€ť said Andy Wessel with the Health Department, â€śbut we found that many people werenâ€™t aware of them even if they were just a block or two away.â€ť
The Walking Concierge was developed by the Health Department working with Omaha Public Library, the Wellness Council of the Midlands, the City of Omaha Planning Department, and the Downtown Improvement District. It comes in two version â€“ poster and wallet-sized.
Wallet-sized copies of the Walking Concierge can be picked up at the Information Desk in W. Dale Clark Library at 215 S. 15th St. A printable copy of the poster version is available online at www.douglascountyhealth.com. Just click on the Walking Concierge link and click to print.
â€śThe Walking Concierge is a fun way for people to get information they need to make their life easier,â€ť said Jody duRand with Omaha Public Library. â€śNext time youâ€™re out walking around downtown, stop by the Library and pick one up.â€ť
