The public is invited to an open house Wednesday, June 6 to learn about improvements planned for South 13th Street. The meeting is from 5 to 7 p.m. at the "F" Street Community Center, 1225 "F" Street. No formal presentations are planned.
Those attending will review preliminary plans to improve safety and traffic flow for all modes of transportation on S. 13th Street, between "K" and South streets. Proposed improvements include adding a center two-way turn lane, enhancing crosswalk and bicyclist safety, adjusting on-street parking to meet existing needs, converting street lights to energy-saving LED lamps and replacing aging and diseased trees.
The open house is being jointly hosted by the City, Everett Neighborhood Association, Near South Neighborhood Association and the South of Downtown Community Development Organization. City and neighborhood representatives will be available to discuss ideas and answer questions.
The improvements are consistent with the findings of previous South of Downtown Study efforts. A $160,000 "Partners for Places" grant will allow the project to move forward as early as fall. The grant was secured by the Lincoln Community Foundation in partnership with the City of Lincoln Sustainability Coordinator.
