Housing Affordability and Community Revitalization
Seven NewDEALers have risen to the office of Mayor just this year, and their impact is already being felt. This week, Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird announced a new tax incentive to support home buyers in certain neighborhoods as part of her community revitalization strategy. In coverage of the announcement, a local realtor talks about how the initiative could help influence a younger demographic to put down roots in Lincoln. The Mayor has also taken steps to make Lincoln a more welcoming place for all, such as signing an anti-discrimination order in November.
