South Lincoln Planning Implementation Committee (SLPIC)

 

The South Lincoln Planning Implementation Committee (SLPIC) is a Planning Board subcommittee and focuses on project specific planning projects in and around South Lincoln/Lincoln Station. SLPIC will implement and manage projects in and around Lincoln Station and South Lincoln and report to the planning board with updates. 
   

Background


 
The Town of Lincoln's Comprehensive Long Range Plan was accepted at the 2009 Town Meeting. A key issue identified in the plan was the economic sustainability of Lincoln's small commercial area, Lincoln Station. In 2010 a Planning Board subcommittee was formed to study and make recommendations for Lincoln Station. The study was completed in 2014 and documents the advantages & challenges for Lincoln Station, supported by background information including demographics, infrastructure, & site constraints.

In 2016 a Place Making study was conducted by the Conway School looking at ways to make Lincoln Station a more vibrant center with improved pedestrian connectivity to the surrounding area.

Throughout the years, Lincoln has conducted numerous studies of Lincoln Station and South Lincoln many of which can be found by clicking here
