PlanForward is the Lincoln-Lancaster County 2050 Comprehensive Plan. The Plan embodies Lincoln and Lancaster County's shared vision for the future, out to the year 2050. The Lincoln-Lancaster County 2050 Comprehensive Plan is a roadmap to “plan forward,” not only in time, but in concept, to envision a community that is Thriving, Livable, Equitable, Innovative, and Resilient. These five themes are found throughout the new Plan and build the long range vision for our One Community.
The development of PlanForward was coordinated with the formulation of the 2050 Long Range Transportation Plan, 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. 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.
