Benson-Ames Alliance

Community Spirit in Action

The inaugural Indie, an Omaha by Design and Benson-Ames Alliance urban road race, is in the books, but the planning has already begun for 2015. Pictured above, two participants stopped to celebrate at the finish line on Maple Street in downtown Benson.

Welcome to the Benson-Ames Alliance (B-AA). This group was formed in 2005 to help plan and implement the revitalization of the area bordered by Western Avenue on the south, Sorensen Parkway on the north, Saddle Creek Road/Fontenelle Boulevard on the east and 72nd Street on the west.

The B-AA is striving to become a sustainable community that actively seeks a balance between its built and natural environments. Omaha by Design serves as the project manager.

The B-AA meets the fourth Wednesday of the month at Goodwill Industries in Benson Park Plaza from noon to 1:00pm unless otherwise noted. The public is welcome to attend – just give us a call at 402.554.4010 or email so we have enough food. We’d love to see and hear from you!
