There will be a public informational
meeting Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at 110 N. Kickapoo St., the former
Integrity Data building, in downtown Lincoln. The purpose of the public
meeting is to share information gathered during workshop sessions
conducted with downtown business owners and community leaders.
These workshops began the planning process for revitalization and
redevelopment of downtown Lincoln. All residents are encouraged to
attend the public informational meeting where results of the
workshops will be shared.
Following the workshops and public
meeting, a planning team will begin to develop two comprehensive
planning documents for downtown Lincoln.
The first is a "Downtown Redevelopment Plan," which focuses on
the downtown business environment, including a land-use plan,
traffic and parking plans, and an economic development and business
The second is a "Downtown Revitalization Plan," which makes
recommendations on specific physical improvements to downtown
Lincoln, including streetscape improvements, a conceptual plan for
the public parks and courthouse square, historical fašade
improvements, and a historical preservation plan.
