Candidate for Re-Election to the Planning Board
My Core Values:
Preserve the Town’s Character, Strengthen our Community, Respect our Land
Our Zoning Bylaw is an expression of these same core values, allowing us to manage growth and change responsibly while respecting our historic and rural heritage. We benefit in Lincoln from the farsighted, altruistic actions of residents who placed large tracts of land in conservation and adopted large-lot zoning with development controls. We are all stewards of this precious legacy.
Continue to Support the Planning Board’s Mission
During my 12 years on the Planning Board, we’ve seen significant change. I’m proud to have contributed to the Board’s work on the redevelopment of the Mall at Lincoln Station, the Commons in Lincoln (formerly The Groves), and the Comprehensive Long Range Plan. I’ve been the Board’s liaison to the massive Route 2 project and the lead member for issues such as Hanscom Field, the Battle Road Scenic Byway, and cell towers. My background in engineering and law has been helpful throughout.
Facilitate the School Project
Our schools are Lincoln’s most important community asset. I am committed, as is the entire Planning Board, to assisting the School Committee in the successful and swift completion of the school project, in whatever form is finally approved by Town Meeting. Although the Planning Board does have a limited permitting role in the project, our primary contribution will be to act as a technical resource, assisting on specific issues such as traffic circulation.
