Area education leaders recently got a look at renovations at Lincoln Developmental Center, 862 Crahen Road NE. New classrooms, sensory rooms with sparkling lights and bubbling water, better security features and much more are among the improvements that were part of the first phase of the project, which cost $4.37 million. Another $6 million will be spent on Phase II at the school for students with severe multiple impairments and autism spectrum disorder.
