LINCOLN – The town of Lincoln and the Municipal Resilience Program, run by the Nature Conservancy and the Rhode Island Infrastructure Bank, released the Community Resilience Building Report on Feb. 7.

No prioritization towards protection of remaining open space or biodiversity preservation as a resiliency objective? Wow, guess that stuff isn't important in the eyes of community officials. Can't live without clean water, healthy landscape or the ecology that lives within our biosphere.


what about the stream runoff that floods onto the 146 south offramp at breakneck hill road? that was never a problem until a few years ago. now you can see a steady stream of water come out of he woods and onto the road every time it rains.

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
