Lincoln Neighborhood Corridor Plan Kicks Off
The Planning & Community Development department has kicked off the Lincoln Neighborhood Corridor Plan (The LiNC) in collaboration with community and neighborhood groups, local businesses and a variety of City departments. The LiNC will develop a roadmap for improving conditions for Lincoln Blvd. businesses and nearby residents south of the I-10 Freeway.
This unique project goes beyond enhancing sidewalks, landscaping and right-of-way design by integrating additional tools to help local entrepreneurs thrive and contribute to a cohesive business community that better serves nearby residents and visitors. With a strong focus on beautification and the pedestrian experience, the LiNC will also address concerns related to traffic and congestion, safety, transit ridership, and parking.
For more information, please visit the project webpage and sign up to receive notifications and updates about how you can join the growing list of interested residents and businesses who want to help improve conditions on this important City street.
