The meeting will be in the ballroom at the Lincoln Park District
headquarters, 1400 Primm Road, and will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Kent Massie from Massie Massie & Associates in Springfield and
Lisa Kramer from Prairie Engineers in Lincoln will present the
concept plan. The plan includes an overall design to guide the
development of the site into public space intended to promote the
health and well-being of the citizens of Lincoln.
The steering committee had its first public meeting Oct. 13 at
Central School. The committee has met monthly since then, using
input and comments from the initial meeting to develop the concept
plan that will be presented Thursday evening.
On Sept. 28, Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital gave the city of
Lincoln the site of the former hospital as well as the facility's
former parking lot on the north side of Eighth Street.
The development of the concept plan for the site was made
possible through the generosity of Robert J. Woods and Joan Jarrett
Woods through the Woods Foundation.
Members of the steering committee are Njeri Bere, Wayne Cox, Bill
and Jean Gossett, Marcia Greenslate, Alderwoman Kathy Horn, Candy
Letterly, Roy Logan, Todd and Tate Mourning, and Bill and Kathy
