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.

    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 8 months 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 5 months 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.
