Lincoln Public Schools employees housed at the District Office have made themselves at home in their new building. Now, it's your turn to see it.
There will be a community open house Sunday Sept. 15 for the public to take tours of the $18 million facility.
Many employees agree the building is a huge improvement from the old offices that burned down on Memorial Day of 2011. Close to 300 people work in the District Office, located on the same site as the old one at 59th and O streets.
A short program featuring Mayor Chris Beutler starts at 1 p.m. Public tours will be available from 1:30 to 4:00. In addition, a couple different string groups and solo artists will be performing inside the building.
The five new businesses directly east of the District Office, including Whole Foods Market, is still under construction. Whole Foods is set to open sometime this winter.
