Doug Deckert is a good neighbor – you can find him at events, participating at community meetings and instigating fun activities in his Northside neighborhood of Observatory Hill. It is important to Doug that he and his son connect to their neighbors in their community.
It’s Doug’s goal to create an outdoor space that encourages connectedness in Observatory Hill. The lot he will be working on has been vacant and overlooked for quite some time – however, Doug plans to change that. His design for the space includes garden beds for the community, a campfire pit, lawn games and creative gardening spaces.
I want to create a life of connectedness for myself and my son where I live.— Doug Deckert, ReClaim Northside Ambassador
