Public Invited to Comment on Draft of LPlan2040

The Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Department invites the public to review and comment on the draft LPlan2040, the 10-year update to the Comprehensive Plan and the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). Together, these plans look ahead 30 years at how Lincoln will grow, where residents will live and work, and how they will travel.

The Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Commission will hold three public hearings to receive input on the plan before finalizing their recommendations to the City Council and County Board in September. Members of the public can attend one of the following meetings in the Council Chambers, 555 South 10th Street:

Residents also can also review the draft plans and submit feedback in the following ways:

The City Council and County Board are expected to hold hearings and take action to adopt the plans in October.

The LRTP is required for the City and County to receive federal transportation funds, and it must additionally be adopted by the Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), a separate agency with representation from the City, County and State. The MPO Officials Committee is expected to review and adopt the LRTP this year.
