Illuminate Seward

A revitalization project for downtown Seward Nebraska, Illuminate Seward aims to bring and shed light on a community who knows exactly what it means to give back and love local.

IT IS TIME! The white lights along the top of Seward Nebraska’s Downtown Buildings are between 25 and 30 years old. Just like our community, the lights are beautiful…when they work. As a result of approximately three decades of love, light, and laughter – the lights that once illuminated our community are falling apart, creating a hazard and are sorely in need of replacement.

The Illuminate Seward 2023 campaign is to replace these lights with new, highly efficient LED lights for all to enjoy. The bulbs will look the same. The warm color of the light will look the same. But the lights will be up to 90% more efficient and should last another 25+ years!

Join us to show how much you love Seward as we work together to revitalize Nebraska’s most historic and beautiful downtown!

Listen to our Podcast below with Gregg Nelson from Rue 6 & Squire Ward’s. Gregg talks about how the Illuminate Seward concept started, some backgroun and an update on the progress of the project.
