South of Downtown community conversation planned for Thursday

South of Downtown Community Development Organization, 11.12

Affordable housing and economic development are among the priorities identified by people who live south of Lincoln's downtown. 

Residents with thoughts about the businesses and services they want in the Everett and Near South neighborhoods — and on programming at the F Street Community Center — are invited to a community conversation Thursday.

The South of Downtown Community Development Organization is co-hosting the event with the City Urban Development Department, City-County Planning Department and the South of Downtown Steering Committee.

Planning Department staff will discuss the use of zoning and land-use regulations to achieve South of Downtown neighborhood goals and the potential of using a community land trust to increase affordable housing. The Community Development Organization has spent nearly three years visiting with more than 3,000 residents, and the availability of decent, affordable housing emerged as a prevailing concern, said Shawn Ryba, its executive director.

Resident input will also help create a South of Downtown redevelopment plan, said Wynn Hjermstad of Urban Development Department.

The event is 5:30-7:30 p.m. on the second floor of the F Street Community Center, 1225 F St.
