Save the Happy Hollow Sunken Garden, Dundee's last greenspace!
A radical construction plan will cut down 20 trees, destroy their shade canopy, rip up lawn and replace it all with an ill-conceived project of hardscape, patios, permanent walls and structures, lighting, stairways and pesticide spraying. Now is the time to act! The Boulevard system in Omaha was meant to provide a natural retreat from city stress. No other Boulevard in Omaha has such hardscape or buildings. Each day, thousands of Omahans enjoy the relaxing drive along Happy Hollow Boulevard under its canopy of trees. Neighbors enjoy the expanse of lawn and the open space for a game of soccer, walking their dogs or sledding in the winter. Signing this petition asks Omaha City Councilmember Pete Festersen and all parties to withdraw support for the proposed Sunken Garden construction plan now under consideration. Dundee’s Sunken Garden along Happy Hollow Boulevard was never intended to be covered by concrete. Sign the petition now! Stop the construction in the Dundee greenspace!
