Public Invited to Downtown Streetscape Project Open House July 12

Lincoln, NE (July 6, 2022) The public is invited to attend the Downtown Corridors project open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 12 at the Jayne Snyder Trails Center, 228 N. 21st St. Participants will be introduced to the project and have the opportunity to provide input on initial streetscape concepts for segments of “O”, Ninth and 10th streets downtown. No formal presentation is planned.

The Planning Department, Urban Development Department, and Downtown Lincoln Association are in the early stages of planning the renovation of the major streetscape corridors in downtown Lincoln. Renovation of these corridors was identified in the 2018 Downtown Master Plan as an opportunity to enhance existing public spaces and provide additional destinations that serve the whole community. The City is also hopeful that these improvements will serve to leverage additional private reinvestment along and around the affected streets.

Initial input was provided through public surveys earlier this year. A second public open house is planned for later this summer. The conceptual master plan for the project is anticipated to be completed by the end of the year.
