Civico Development is proposing Oriole Landing, a 60-unit mixed-income rental community adjacent to the Rt. 2 interchange, Mary's Way and 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).

10 of the 15 units will be set aside as “local preference”: Lincoln residents, employees of the Town of Lincoln, employees of local businesses and families with children in the Lincoln Public Schools. This project will provide housing for seniors, single parent householders and young people who want convenient access to the Boston metropolitan area.

Lincoln has taken a unique approach to planning by encouraging the development of affordable housing. Unlike most Massachusetts towns, Lincoln has achieved the state’s 10% affordable housing goal without ever having to issue a Chapter 40B comprehensive permit. Lincoln has provided affordable housing entirely through its own local initiatives: by adopting zoning incentives, granting special permits, investing local revenues and Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds.

At the March 24, 2018 Town Meeting, Lincoln Voters will be asked to approve a Bylaw Amendment to establish a North Lincoln Planning Development Overlay District and a Preliminary Development and Land Use Plan.
