Lincoln is a growing city. The same growth that boosts our local economy and provides opportunity for our residents also puts a strain on its existing infrastructure.
Last year, the City of Lincoln asked a group of its citizens to develop ideas and consensus on how to address current and future infrastructure needs.
They determined that Lincoln has a funding gap and should invest more in fixing Lincoln’s streets.
