Centennial Mall near the State Capitol is taking on a new look starting this week. Lincoln Parks and Recreation spokesman Jerry Shorney tells us that they will begin converting three inoperable fountains on Centennial Mall to lawn areas.
“Tis will reflect a little bit of what’s going to happen in the future, more green space and a little more area to roam down there.”
The city of Lincoln has committed $3 million to assist in funding essential improvements to Centennial Mall. The city is seeking other financial partners including the State of Nebraska and private donors.
