Remember this image? Just ideas; not the plan. An image of Lincoln published in the BVD in February of 2020, features several design ideas for the downtown area. Although the image was intended as a starting point for discussion about downtown revitalization ideas, the messaging and reporting surrounding it appeared to have left many believing it was the direction planning efforts for Lincoln were headed.
How can Lincoln develop without losing its identity and changing into something the community itself won't recognize?
That has been, in one way or another, the core conundrum in various efforts to make plans for Lincoln's future over the last 50-plus years. It remains at the heart of the upcoming effort to develop a comprehensive community master plan for the town.
