Has the pandemic changed how you value Lincoln's community amenities?

In 2019, The Town of Lincoln completed an extensive community engagement process to inform and create a Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan. This plan acts as a guiding light to development in these areas and allowed community members to have their voices heard by the municipality.

In 2021, the Town reached out to the community through an online survey, to better understand if community feedback during the collected through Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan process has changed in any way due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent events. The research was conducted through a joint partnership between Town of Lincoln and Brock University called the Brock-Lincoln Living Lab. This unique partnership allows for collaboration and provides benefits to both communities. This research will contribute to this partnership and further collaboration through this partnership.


Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey!

Contest winners will be contacted directly. We will present survey findings and how they may be applied on a broader scale in the coming weeks.
