The Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Commission has amended and recommended approval of LPlan2040, the 10-year update to the Comprehensive Plan, and it is now available for review at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: lplan). The Commission also recommended approval of the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), and it will be posted on the City website in the near future.
LPlan2040 and the LRTP look ahead 30 years at how Lincoln will grow, where residents will live and work, and how they will travel.
The Commission's recommendations on LPlan2040 now go to the City Council and County Board, which will have a joint public hearing tentatively scheduled for 5 p.m., Tuesday, October 18 in the Council Chambers, 555 South 10th Street.
The LRTP is required for the City and County to receive federal transportation funds, and it must 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 December 1.
Residents can make online comments on the plans. Beginning Monday, September 19, printed copies of LPlan2040 will be available for review at the City-County Planning Department, 555 S. 10th St., or at any library branch. Beginning Thursday, September 22, printed copies of the LRTP and Technical Report can be reviewed at the Planning Department; the Bennett Martin Public Library, 136 S. 14th St.; or the Gere Branch Library, 2400 S. 56th St.
