Mayor of Lincoln’s New Years address

Lincoln plan for future set

As we look back to 2015, it was a year filled with change for the Town of Lincoln.

It was also a year where we found our strategic direction and started planning the future by completing the new future focus corporate plan and the associated work plan. These will guide our work, not only in 2016, but also for the rest of this council term. The priorities in our plan will guide our collective efforts and our investments in Town services.

I look forward to 2016, as it will be a year filled with realizing our potential. Council will guide local decisions and continue to promote our quality of life and inherent beauty.

We will capitalize on our ideal geographic location, promoting our transportation corridors and economic development opportunities. Lincoln is a community with both urban and rural elements and we will continue to balance those appropriately.

Council is particularly pleased that recently the New York Times highlighted the wineries in the Niagara Region, specifically showcasing many in Lincoln; similarly, three local restaurants in our community made the top 100 in Canada.

Many outside our borders are now beginning to discover the gem we already know Lincoln is. An asset that many of you have made clear must be protected.

2016 will also see us look at the way we do business, specifically continuing to be more customer-service focused, and finding new ways to communicate more effectively what we are doing.

Key to the future of Lincoln is our youth, who are critical to our success as a community.

We will personally focus on youth initiatives including and utilizing technology to engage them, as well as through projects like the budget proposed skate park, the restoration of the Scout Hut in Beamsville and other ideas we hope come forward through the new Mayor Youth Council.

We wish all residents, businesses and visitors to Lincoln, all the best in 2016.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Mayor Sandra Easton
& Council
