Benson-Ames Alliance

Community Spirit in Action

Omaha City Councilman Pete Festersen spoke at the Nov. 2 dedication of Benson’s east gateway.

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 volunteer B-AA Steering Council meets the fourth Wednesday of every other┬ámonth 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!
