Benson Sawmilling & ToolsGiving

On behalf of the Benson Neighborhood Association, Benson First Friday, Habitat for Humanity of Omaha, Benson BID and many other neighborhood backers, we're excited to announce our vision for safer, greener, more accessible and welcoming alleyways within the heart of Benson!

This project is partially supported by the Omaha Neighborhood Grants Program, a collaboration between the Peter Kiewit Foundation, the Omaha Community Foundation, and ONE Omaha.

We call it Benson Out Back.

On October 27th, we will be closing off the south alleyway between 60th St. & 60th Ave. for an awareness event with music, food, drink, celebrate public art, and to share the vision. We want your feedback on the future of the alleyways in Benson!!
