2005 Media Releases
The public is invited to attend an informational meeting Tuesday, May 10 on the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for Lincoln for 2005 through 2011. The briefing is set for 3:30 to 5 p.m. in room 113 of the County-City Building, 555 South 10th Street. Citizens will be able to ask questions on the draft CIP for parks, urban development, water, wastewater and streets.
“The six-year CIP is an important document to guide the public investment needed to maintain, improve and expand Lincoln’s infrastructure,” said Marvin Krout, Director of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Department. “We are offering this public briefing to raise awareness and interest in the community.”
The City-County Planning Commission is scheduled to have a public hearing on the draft CIP at its meeting May 18 to determine if the proposed projects are consistent with the Comprehensive Plan. The Mayor will submit a final version of the CIP to the City Council in June with her proposed operating budget.
The draft CIP is available on the City Web site at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: CIP) or at the Planning Department in the City-County Building.
