Civico Development is proposing Oriole Landing, a 60-unit mixed-income rental community located at 1 Mary's Way, adjacent to The Commons. As proposed, Oriole Landing will offer a diversity of housing options including fifteen units (25%) reserved for those earning a maximum of 80% of the Area Median Income. All 60 units will count on the Town’s Subsidized Housing Inventory (SHI).​

At the March 24, 2018 Town Meeting, Lincoln Voters voted to approve by 2/3rds vote a Bylaw Amendment to establish a North Lincoln Planning Development Overlay District and a Preliminary Development and Land Use Plan.

Within 2 years following Town Meeting, Civico Development is required to return back to the Planning  Board for Site Plan Special Permit Approval through a public hearing process.​ Civico has indicated they will file an application within a few weeks following Town Meeting. A hearing notice and abutter notification will occur as well as a mailing to each postal patron in Lincoln. We will also post dates on this website. ​
