Our Wrought Iron Fence Project Is Finally Complete!
We're excited to announce the completion of our new wrought iron fence! This new fence is another new feature that helps beautify this once vacant lot. The fence will provide security, while defining the boundaries of this community space on North 24th Street.
The installation process has been a lengthy one, taking over two years to finish, due to the pandemic. When the contractors began the installation, they uncovered a buried building and foundation under the garden.
Unfortunately, until very recently, it was common practice for the government to bury entire structures when demolitioning houses and buildings in urban communities like North Omaha.
During this project contractors discovered that the structure was only six inches under the surface in some places, resulting in the need for additional equipment and extra labor costs.
As a result, this complication caused our project to go over budget by $3,000.
Global Leadership Group Omaha, (GLG) is a small, grassroots, nonprofit that depends upon donations from people like you, to continue our revitalization work in disinvested communities like North Omaha.
30 donations of $100 each will help us alleviate this $3,000 deficit!
