Community and Regional Planning

Graduate planning students in this semester’s Planning Studio participated on September 13th in an open house at Cooper Commons, a half-block redevelopment project spearheaded by NeighborWorks Lincoln at 10th and D Streets in Lincoln. Cooper Commons includes seven single-family residential units for first-time, low- to moderate-income homebuyers.

Students in the Planning Studio are working with NeighborWorks Lincoln to study a variety of needs in the surrounding South Salt Creek Neighborhood, with an eye toward immediate and longer-term improvements to the neighborhood. South Salt Creek Neighborhood is an older neighborhood located south of the recently redeveloped West Haymarket area of downtown Lincoln.
