The Lincoln City Cultural Plaza project will transform the outdoor space around the historic Delake School building, turning the grounds into a pedestrian-friendly plaza filled with dedicated installments of public art, gathering spaces with seating and brick patios and spaces for outdoor arts education, connected by a meandering pathway. Additionally, the redesigned traffic flow will include new parking areas with islands, adequate lighting for evening use, and other upgrades required by city code.
The LCCC Board of Directors has been working on the Plaza design since early 2018, in cooperation with the landscape architect firm Shapiro Didway and Newport-based Civil West Engineering Services. The board has used a community-based process to gather feedback and design comments from our stakeholders, members, general public, and major partners. We are excited that the design will not only be useful, but an artistic and beautiful enhancement to Lincoln City, created in collaboration with the community.
