2004 Media Releases
Mayor Coleen J. Seng’s second Town Hall meeting will be the evening of Monday, February 2 at the Auld Recreation Center in Antelope Park. The meeting will be preceded by an open house on the City’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The open house will begin at 6 p.m., and the Town Hall will begin at 7:30 p.m.
“Each year as part of the budget, the Mayor presents a six-year CIP plan for major City construction projects, and it is one of the most important responsibilities of local government,” said Mayor Seng. “The CIP is a blueprint for Lincoln’s capital spending. We are continually looking ahead to see how we can maintain and improve roads, bridges, utilities, police and fire services, parks and other community buildings and programs for the people of Lincoln. We have added the CIP open house to the Town Hall to invite citizens to hear more about the plans for the future of the City and participate.”
The current CIP includes more than $600 million in construction projects over six years. At the CIP open house, City Departments will display and discuss existing facilities and proposed future City capital projects throughout the community. The public will also have an opportunity to comment on the CIP.
The Town Hall begins at 7:30 p.m. The Mayor will make brief remarks and introduce representatives of the City departments. The public will then have an opportunity to ask questions on any topic relating to City government. At 8:30 p.m., there will be an opportunity for informal follow-up discussion.
The City’s government access channel, 5 CITY-TV, will tape the 7:30 to 8:30 portion of the meeting to be aired at later dates on cable channel 5.
