LINCOLN – As people coming into Lincoln from Central Falls pass over the town line, “they see a bridge with a sidewalk that’s been closed for 25 years,” says Lincoln resident Bill McManus. Coming into town from Cumberland, another “Welcome to Lincoln” sign is surrounded by overgrowth.

“I’m asking for a plan to improve the overall appearance of Lincoln,” he said, which would address illegal dumping, crumbling roads and sidewalks, and general beautification projects.

There are orange barrels on the sidewalk on Front St since last year.


How can the Town expect residents to care for their property when the Town isn’t even taking caring of its own property? Kudos to the Town Administrator for addressing this issue.


We should care about our town. There are soooo many sidewalks that are overgrown that you are forced to walk in the street. Example: on front street across from St Judes.
