A single-mindedness of mission is critical to redevelopment efforts in North Omaha, and 75 North was created to provide the leadership necessary to reverse the fortunes in the Highlander community. Comprised of local leaders, developers, and community members, 75 North is committed to making a difference, breaking new ground, and building a healthier community for all.
The 2009 demolition of the Pleasantview Homes public housing project created a unique opportunity for an enormously positive community revitalization program.
Deteriorating neighborhoods around Pleasantview Homes left wide swaths of vacant space and condemned homes, opening a door for land acquisition and redevelopment
Long standing community stakeholders have been working in this community for years, providing ideal partners in the 75 North vision.
