University Place Subarea Plan Open House Set For June 11

Published on June 05, 2024

Residents are invited to the University Place Subarea Plan open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 11, at First United Methodist Church, 2723 N. 50th St. Attendees should enter through the north doors. The accessible access with elevator is on the east side. For those unable to attend the in-person event, a virtual open house is available until July 31 at

The open house will include interactive stations with staff from the Lincoln-Lancaster Planning Department and other City departments to discuss topics and answer questions. Sandwiches and other refreshments will be provided. Children are welcome.

The University Place Subarea Plan is an opportunity to take a comprehensive look at the University Place Neighborhood. The plan will present a strategic vision for the neighborhood and provide a framework for achieving that vision. It will address a variety of topics including land use, housing, transportation, economic development, appearance and placemaking, and other community enhancements.

When completed, the University Place Subarea Plan will be adopted as part of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Comprehensive Plan. Examples of other subarea plans in Lincoln include the Downtown Master Plan, North 33rd and Cornhusker Subarea Plan, and the South Haymarket Neighborhood Plan.
