NeighborWorks Lincoln’s Annual Neighborhood Forum Returns February 12

NeighborWorks Lincoln ( is proud to host the Sixth-Annual Neighborhood Forum on February 12 at Sower Church, 2640 R St., which creates a unique opportunity for City of Lincoln residents to engage directly with City Department Directors, elected officials, and other stakeholders on issues impacting their neighborhoods.
