LPlan 2040 - 2016 Update is the Lincoln-Lancaster County 2040 Comprehensive Plan. The Plan embodies Lincoln and Lancaster County's shared vision for the future, out to the year 2040. It outlines where, how and when the community intends to grow, how to preserve and enhance the things that make it special, and strategies for implementing the vision for how we will live, work, play and get around in the future.
The development of LPlan 2040 - 2016 Update was coordinated with the formulation of the Long Range Transportation Plan - 2016 Update, a separate document that is required for the City and County to receive federal transportation funds. The development of the Long Range Transportation Plan and other related activities is undertaken through a separate entity established by the City, the County and the State called the Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (LMPO).
The Comprehensive Plan and LRTP go through a major review and update process every 5 years, with the last plan updates adopted in late 2016. The Planning Commission, which is charged by state law with developing the Comprehensive Plan, also reviews the Plan regularly. The Planning Department prepares and submits two documents to the Planning Commission annually to assist with the regular review, a Community Indicators report and a Residential Land Inventory report.
