The public is invited to a workshop the evening of Monday, October 25 to help create a vision for the proposed downtown civic plaza on the northeast corner of 13th and "P" streets. The meeting is from 6 to 9 p.m. at Chez Hay, 210 N. 14th St. The workshop, facilitated by the internationally-recognized, non-profit planning organization Project for Public Spaces, will include a visit to the site.
The civic plaza was identified in the 2005 Lincoln Downtown Master Plan as one of seven "catalyst" projects for downtown. "The plaza has been envisioned as downtown's future 'living room' — an attractive place that anchors and supports downtown and the entire community," said City Urban Development Director Dave Landis. "The workshop will be a fun, fast-paced exercise to encourage us to start thinking about the possibilities for this key location."
Refreshments will be served. Those who plan to attend are asked to contact Kristi Nydahl in Urban Development by October 21 at 441-8206 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More information on the Downtown Master Plan is available at downtownlincoln.org.
Since its formation in 1975, Project for Public Spaces has helped build, transform and revitalize thousands of parks, plazas, streets, markets, libraries and other community gathering spaces in hundreds of cities across America and around the world. More information is available at www.pps.org.
