Omaha City Councilman Ben Gray said Sunday that north Omaha neighborhoods are “coming back to life” and he hopes voters in the 2nd District will give him another term to help continue the recovery.

Gray said he announced his re-election plans from the Planet Fitness health club at 5804 Ames Ave. to underscore the resurgence of business in the area. The club, which opened Jan. 1, and the Heartland Workforce Solutions office next door occupy a building in Ames Plaza that had been vacant for 30 years.
