LDN -- Top Stories

At the Tuesday evening meeting of the Lincoln City Council, aldermen learned that the Tropics sign, if they approve, will be placed in the parking lot at the new McDonald's Restaurant being built at the Corner of Woodlawn Road and Lincoln Parkway this year. Bill Thomas, representing the restoration committee, said that the owners of the McDonalds have agreed that it would be proper to return the sign to as close to the original restaurant as possible. Thomas also presented a plan for raising the near $60,000 that will be needed to complete the restoration project. He noted that first, they need to get the city's stamp of approval so that that the location can be listed and included in future grant applications as well as fundraising efforts. The city was also asked to contribute approximately $17,000 to the project, possibly from the hotel/motel tax revenue. The committee consisting of Thomas, Tami Goodrich, Alderwoman Michelle Bauer and Tourism Director Bill Hoagland presented a timeline to have the new sign dedicated in the spring of 2018.
