Planning Commission Oversees Plan

The process to update LPlan 2040 and the LRTP will be guided by the City-County Planning Commission. The City Council and the County Board of Commissioners adopt the Comprehensive Plan.

The transportation element is guided by the Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). The MPO Technical Committee comprised of staff from the City, County and State, provided technical support and guidance, while the MPO Officials Committee adopts the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).

Following the review process, a draft of the updated Comprehensive Plan and LRTP will have formal public hearings before the Planning Commission and then before the City Council and County Board. The LRTP will be presented to the MPO Officials Committee for adoption in late 2016 and will subsequently need to be accepted by State and Federal agencies.
