Through a grant received from the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, the City of Lincoln has completed a comprehensive study of its downtown. The results of the study can be found in two primary documents: the Downtown Redevelopment Plan and the Downtown Revitalization Plan.
The Downtown Redevelopment Plan was created to establish a vision and core strategies for the revitalization of downtown. The Plan assesses current conditions and then lays out strategies and goals for land use, economic development, infrastructure, and implementation. The Redevelopment Plan is intended to be used as a guide for future public and private investment in downtown.
The Downtown Revitalization Plan is a comprehensive planning document with specific recommendations on redeveloping Downtown Lincoln into a compelling place to live, work, shop, and play. This Plan provides details for implementation of the shorter-term goals found in the Redevelopment Plan.
