MOVING FORWARD

 
 
Starting in the upper left and going clockwise: Shady Bend Golf Course (hole #5), Sanders Baseball Complex, Osborne Public Library, Carnegie Research Library, Main Street Osborne, Downtown Mini-park, Osborne Gun Range, and Osborne Municipal Airport.

Since 1990, the ambitious people of Osborne have taken on and completed several community projects.  Almost all of the projects were built strictly by using private money only.  Thousands of volunteer hours helped contribute to the construction of many of these projects.  It all started with the completion of Shady Bend Golf Course, a 9-hole grass green, watered fairway golf course constructed along the Solomon River.  Other projects that followed were the Sanders Baseball Complex, a beautiful four-field facility on the west edge of town, the Osborne Public Library, Carnegie Research Library, the 4,000+ feet asphalt runway at the airport, the Osborne gun range, the downtown mini-park, and the playground equipment for the city park.  The Downtown Revitalization project led to all new curbs and gutters, streetlights, and updated store fronts for many businesses.  This was followed by the First Street renovation which replaced the old brick street with a new concrete street and storm drains.  Then the Oz-Some Christmas Lights project brought about new Christmas decorations, such as lighted snowflakes, border lighting for the downtown business area, and Christmas wreathes for the streetlights.  The decorations can be seen from one end of the city to the other during the holiday season.
