Public Hearing Set on Cardwell Branch Watershed
The Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Commission meeting Wednesday, October 10 will include a public hearing on the Cardwell Branch Watershed Master Plan. A proposed amendment to the Comprehensive Plan would incorporate the master plan as a subarea plan. The Planning Commission meeting begins at 1 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 555 South 10th Street.
The Cardwell Branch Watershed is southwest of Lincoln. The master plan addresses flood issues, stormwater quality and stream stability and includes long-term planning tools and improvement projects to guide sustainable growth in the region.
After action by the Planning Commission the master plan will have public hearings before the City Council and County Board.
