2018 Lincoln Downtown Master Plan

Downtown Lincoln is an exciting and vibrant place that has experienced significant change. Over the years, there have been significant public and private investments in new building construction, renovations, and infrastructure. In order to capitalize on these collective investments, further development in the Downtown should be realized and guided by an overall plan.

The 2005 Lincoln Downtown Master Plan and 2012 Update have both served their purposes to guide the evolution of Downtown Lincoln. The City has completed numerous projects as recommended in the previous plans including the 16,000 seat Pinnacle Bank Arena and adjacent West Haymarket development, N Street Protected Bikeway, P Street Primary Retail Streetscape and Lincoln Community Foundation Tower Square. The City is partnering with experts to create a new Downtown Lincoln Master Plan that will guide public and private investments to elevate Downtown Lincoln as the premier urban neighborhood in the region.
