Infrastructure Investments

The Town of Lincoln makes continued investments in infrastructure to support growth areas and ensure services continue to be delivered to mature neighbourhoods.

Priorities for infrastructure investments are identified through the annual municipal budget process. The Town of Lincoln’s budget – like those of other municipalities in Ontario – addresses Council Priorities, operations, services, infrastructure, and asset management. It includes the Operating Budget and Capital Budget.

An important source of funding for infrastructure projects is development charges. These are fees charged to developers by the municipality for the recovery of growth costs.

Most infrastructure projects are funded through Capital or Operating budgets under one of two categories:

  • Transportation
  • Environment and Safety
