Reimagining Lincoln Neighborhood

26 Apr 2022


A neighborhood just north of downtown Fort Dodge has the potential to become the home for people living in a mixture of apartments, townhomes and small houses, according to a plan presented to the City Council Monday.

In the area known as the Lincoln neighborhood, “residential is the main use needed,” according to Carissa Harvey, the city’s strategic planner.

“We want people to live in this neighborhood,” she said.

The Lincoln neighborhood is bordered by North Seventh Street on the west, Dakota Avenue to the north, Ninth Street to the east and First Avenue North to the south.

The North Ninth Street portion of the neighborhood was the target of an effort about 10 years ago to turn houses that had been divided up into apartments back into single family homes. Some new houses were also built along North Ninth Street at the time.
