Save Lincoln Square

Save Lincoln Square The loss of public parking to development will adversely hurt local businesses in Lincoln Square and beyond who rely on vehicular traffic for many of their customers. Also at risk are the local heritage and regional draw represented by the German Day Festival, Applefest, Mayfest, the local Farmer’s Market, the DANK Haus German Cultural Center, Old Town School of Folk Music, and the Davis Theater.
