Funding Infrastructure in Lincoln


The Town of Lincoln makes continued investments in infrastructure to support growth areas and ensure services continue to be delivered to mature neighbourhoods.

Priorities for infrastructure investments are identified through the annual municipal budget process. The Town of Lincoln’s budget – like those of other municipalities in Ontario – addresses Council Priorities, operations, services, infrastructure, and asset management. It includes the Operating Budget and Capital Budget.

An important source of funding for infrastructure projects is development charges. These are fees charged to developers by the municipality for the recovery of growth costs.

Most infrastructure projects are funded through Capital or Operating budgets under one of two categories:

  • Transportation; or
  • Environment & Safety.

    I have a question about Cell phone service. I live on Homestead Dr. Ever since the Condo building has gone up beside the Butcher and Banker. my Internet and Cell phone services has been weakened. I lose calls while just sitting in my kitchen, I have called Bell for my cell phone and I have called Cogeco for my internet service. They do not know why my tv and my landline keep disconnecting, I have had both come to my house to help improve the service, with no luck. With more Condos in the works. This will just make service worse. What is the Town going to do to improve this situation?

    Lsiebert asked almost 2 years ago

    Thank you for your question. The Town is working with Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to expand broadband service in Lincoln. Several announcements were made by ISPs to improve service delivery to Lincoln. Please stay up to date on our Speak Up Lincoln page: https://speakuplincoln.ca/broadband-strategy (Contact information for specific ISPs is available on this page.)

    When is construction starting on the new firehall for Vineland? The current site is in a residential neighbourhood. The parking is inadequate; the number of calls the firehall answers in a week is considerable. The firehall requires the two fire trucks to have to back up into the space, leading to significant noise both when the trucks leave the station and when they return. The street is actively used by children, dog walkers, etc. It's time to move the station to its new location.

    JVD asked 8 months ago

    Thanks for your question. The Town recognizes that the location of the current Vineland fire station poses a number of challenges and has plans to move to a more suitable location.

    The Town owns property at the corner of Victoria Ave and Claus Rd upon which a new fire station will be built. The timing of the construction of the new station is dependent upon the progress of the Prudhommes development and, ultimately, upon Council approval of funding.  Once the new station is built, fire department operations in Vineland plans to move to the new facility, and the Tallman Drive building will be vacated.

    What is the Tallman Drive realignment? Can I see the preliminary design? Also, when is the firehall going to be moved from Tallman Drive? It is a busy firehall set in a residential neighbourhood, a poor location for such a busy firehall.

    JVD asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question. The Town is proposing to relocate the eastern end of Tallman Drive to the west and away from the adjacent ravine. Relocation of the roadway initiates the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Schedule 'B') process which requires the Town to develop various realignment options and evaluate the associated risks/impacts to the environment of each alternative.

     The east end of Tallman Drive is in poor condition and the current eastern edge of the road is near a steep slope that is experiencing erosion and instability. Relocating the roadway away from the slope is a permanent solution to the problem and improves safety, maintenance obligations and access for both the Town and local properties owners. The Environmental Assessment will identify and analyze potential locations to relocate the current road alignment which may include land acquisition requirements and additional agreements between the Town and private property owners. 

     Public notification will be provided to advise the community of the assessment.

    Very good job. One improvement could be a sidewalk on Frederick Ave.(Vineland). It is mostly seniors that walk in the neighbourhood and a winding road provides low visibility for driver's (especially at night).

    davebrown asked over 2 years ago

    Thank you for your question. Staff have reviewed the option of constructing new sidewalks previously and the challenge are the large boulevard trees.  New sidewalks would negatively impact the trees, making them unstable and requiring removals in a lot of cases.  To help improve traffic and pedestrian safety the Town previously reduced the speed limit to 40km/hr and continue to monitoring speeding conditions to see if further traffic calming measures are warranted.

    Im still unsure as to why the Town felt the need to tear up our neighborhood in the Greenmeadow Blvd area to replace plastic wate pipe with plastic water pipe wasting hundreds f thousands of taxpayers dollars. All available information appears to indicate the existing water pipe, which was less than 40yrs old, was no where near the expected lifespan of 100yrs plus. Could this money not have been better spent on fixing pot hole filled roads.

    Sarah asked about 2 years ago

    The purpose of the Friesen Neighborhood Project was to replace old metallic watermain and completed road resurfacing on roads where watermain was replaced and as well other nearby roads to take advantage of economies of scale pricing, etc.  In terms of Greenmeadow Blvd, the watermain was identified to be replaced but during construction a portion was found to be PVC pipe material.  However, the age of the watermain was approximately 40 yrs which represents approx. half of the PVC service life of approx. 75 yrs.  However, it is important to note that aside from the actual main piping all the watermain valves, fittings, etc., were old cast iron (metallic) and all the resident’s home services were 40 yr old copper piping, which also gave the Town an opportunity to replace to ensure future reliability with leaks, especially when investing in the new road paving.
