Lincoln has a lot to offer: reasonable homes, friendly people. The young people are genuinely nice which speaks volumes. However the infrastructure is not prepared to deal with unbridled growth. Drug deals/street people congregate at Walmart grocery. The City audit exposed corruption and self dealing. Those involved in City Govt. don’t have the decency to resign.
Similar HOA mismanagement at Sun City: same power players, unsuccessful Executive Director. Losing money on lousy restaurant, opening grounds to the public. Many people have moved away. With two policemen per shift and an inadequate fire department, Lincoln is not well prepared for the future. Lots of potential, but lots of serious problems.

I'd love to see the city embrace a more vibrant food scene. I'm tired of the multiple pizza joints and one bbq place, a dive bar I wouldn't be caught dead in and a couple little cafe's. This city has an adorable downtown that is screaming for a great family friendly pub, a great locally owned farm to fork restaurant, and lots of outdoor seating areas. Places that encourage walkability in the downtown area, and not just having to drive 10 or 15 minutes to get to a restaurant for date night.
I am so blessed to grow up in Lincoln. The people there are some of the most friendliest people you’ll ever meet.

Lincoln has a vibe similar to the Midwest, which focuses on community and family.

There are tons of parks, restaurants and shops you can visit, there’s truly something for everyone here. And if there isn’t anything the close suburbs of Rocklin and Roseville probably have it within a 10 minute drive.
