There will be a public
informational meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., in the
Pegram Room of the Lincoln Public Library. The meeting will be an open house
format, with a short presentation to be given at 5:30 p.m.
The purpose of the public meeting is
to present the preliminary Downtown Redevelopment Plan to residents,
local business owners and community leaders. The plan focuses on the
downtown business environment, including a land-use plan, and an
economic development and business plan.

this public informational meeting.
The planning team is also in the
process of developing 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, parking and traffic plans,
historical fašade improvements, and a historical preservation plan.
Information about the Downtown
Revitalization Plan will presented at a second public informational
meeting at a later date. An announcement regarding the second
informational meeting will be provided in the local news media and
