Lincoln Population On The Rise

Posted: Updated:

The town of Lincoln, like many others around North Dakota, is seeing a lot more growth than they have in the past.

Mayor Robert Johnston says last year 70 new housing permits were issued and an apartment complex was built.

They are currently constructing another 40-unit apartment building and a housing development.

On January 2nd the town opened a new elementary school to keep up with the growth.

Mayor Johnston says he is pleased with the growth and hopes to see even more in the next few years.

"We're fortunate we weren't caught in the oil patch impact where it might be difficult to manage. We didn't go from low or slow or no growth to all of a sudden explosion. That's very difficult to handle and we've seen how that's played out so we haven't had that trouble. We've had pretty steady growth over the last decade, decade and a half," Mayor Johnston said.

Johnston says the 2013 census showed around 2,800 people.

He says to keep up with the growth, he'd like to see more fast food options, office buildings, and a sporting goods store.
