When we band together, amazing things are possible.


What started as 2,100 ideas to address the 2014 Lincoln Vital Signs findings, turned into a focused community agenda to lift Lincoln higher.

People from all sectors of our city have stepped up to make Lincoln even better. Much has been accomplished. The next phase continues and deepens our focus on prosperity for all Lincolnites.
