Lincoln Vital Signs

When the Lincoln Vital Signs 2015 report was released, it was shared and distributed to as many Lincolnites as possible. It was the centerpiece of a community-wide process called Prosper Lincoln and used to catalyze action in areas of importance. Input was gathered about how to move forward from the report through events, meetings, and online suggestions. This input helped shape and set Lincoln’s community agenda.

More than 2,100 ideas from Lincoln residents were used to craft a shared community agenda that focuses on three main areas: Early Childhood, Employment Skills, and Innovation. Everyone in the community is invited to be a part of creating opportunities for the people who live, work, and play in Lincoln. If you are interested in learning how you can get involved, please visit the Prosper Lincoln website for ideas on how to take action, ways to give your time, or instructions for making a donation.
