Downtown Lincoln Revitalization Plan

The Downtown Redevelopment Plan was created to establish a vision and core strategies for the revitalization of downtown.  The Plan assesses current conditions and then lays out strategies and goals for land use, economic development, infrastructure, and implementation.  The Redevelopment Plan is intended to be used as a guide for future public and private investment in downtown.

  • Welcome to Lincoln, Illinois. We're a picturesque community steeped in history and focused on the future. We welcome you to virtually tour our vibrant community and learn more about our rich history and the opportunities for business, recreation, and quality living which our residents and visitors have grown to love.

     

    Lincoln is centrally located in Illinois along the famed Route 66 offering convenient travel time to major American urban centers. Over one million people live within an hour's drive of Lincoln. Bloomington-Normal, Peoria, Springfield, Decatur, and Champaign-Urbana are within 60 miles, and we're midway between Chicago and St. Louis.

     

    Lincoln is also the only city in the world named for and christened by Abraham Lincoln before he became President. We like to think we recognize greatness long before others! We're home to a number of historic sites and events associated with our presidential namesake including the brand new Lincoln College Heritage Museum and the Postville Courthouse.

     

    Lincoln boasts quality schooling and is home to three colleges: Lincoln Christian University, Lincoln College, and Heartland Community College.
