Prairie Engineers provided comprehensive planning and design services in the preparation of the Downtown Revitalization and Redevelopment Plans for the City of Lincoln. The planning area consisted of the central 25 blocks containing two independent business districts within the downtown area.
The Redevelopment Plan established a vision and core strategies for future public and private investment within the Downtown. The Redevelopment Plan was produced following the input from several workshops and public meetings by a team of subconsultants including economic development and land planning experts.
The Revitalization Plan outlined infrastructure development and preservation goals to redevelop Downtown into a compelling place to live, work, shop and play. This Plan included implementation details for shorter-term goals for improved streetscapes, lighting, bicycle routes, sewer and drainage improvements, parking, historic preservation and amenities, green spaces, and a downtown broadband plan.
