LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Lincoln Historic Preservation Commission is backing a plan to redevelop the Department of Veterans Affairs hospital campus into a mix of apartments, town homes and medical offices.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1LCPM1x ) that the commission’s approval serves as a recommendation to the Lincoln City Council, which will consider a redevelopment agreement Monday.

Plans include a new, three-story apartment building for low-income veterans who qualify for veteran housing vouchers, along with a private medical office building.

The VA has been soliciting bids for a new VA clinic in Lincoln. When it’s built, the VA will close its current clinic at the VA hospital and leave the campus.
