NWL’s 1st BLIGHT FRIGHT Open House is a Success!


On October 29th, NeighborWorks Lincoln hosted its first BLIGHT FRIGHT Open House at a recently purchased property that will be redeveloped. Approximately 130 individuals walked through the house between the two times it was open. The purpose of the event was to allow people to see the type of properties NWL normally purchases for its Real Estate Development Program. On account of its condition, this specific property will be demolished and replaced with a newly constructed single family home. NWL hopes to have another open house a year from now to allow the public to see the new home.

News coverage on the event included the following:
Lincoln Journal Star: “Public can view R street problem property before it’s razed, replaced.”

Opening Doors in Our Community

NeighborWorks Lincoln is a non-profit organization dedicated to community revitalization through an active partnership of resident leaders, private businesses and public officials. We open doors for people to achieve their dreams of home ownership and for others who desire a safe and attractive neighborhood.

I wasn’t sure how to move forward, but then I heard about NeighborWorks. It is truly an amazing program…I hope more people use this great service to help themselves and to help Lincoln look better. Thanks, NWL!
