Located in the northernmost region of South Placer County, Lincoln offers the best of all worlds. Residents enjoy the 'escape' of the quiet small town atmosphere—affordable housing, sense of community, and a choice between neighborhood or rural living—yet have access to large city amenities and diverse recreational opportunities all within a short drive. Businesses benefit from the less expensive real estate and utility costs while offering employees a quality community base in which to live and work.
Serviced by State Routes 65 and 193, Lincoln is approximately 10 miles northwest of Interstate 80 and just 26 miles from the Sacramento International Airport. In addition, it boasts its own airport within city limits, Lincoln Regional Airport/Karl Harder Field, with a 6,001-foot runway and the capability to accommodate executive jet aircraft.
Incorporated in 1890, Lincoln has a population of 43,572 people. Since its inception, Lincoln has experienced slow but steady growth. With the annexation of the Twelve Bridges Development in 1994 and the development of several large housing projects, Lincoln is poised for rapid growth over the next several years. The Lincoln City Council, aware of residents’ desire for a positive balance between growth and quality of life, is committed to the careful planning of future public services and facilities. Already, the Council has approved a public facilities plan that extends through 2010 and allows for possible population growth to 41,000. The Council and staff have carefully identified and addressed facility needs to accommodate future growth, such as: water, wastewater, drainage, circulation, solid waste, public safety (fire and police services), schools, libraries, parks, and public administration.
Whether a visitor or new resident, I am certain you will enjoy your stay in Lincoln where you are sure to find a friendly face and excellent service everywhere you visit!
