Lincoln Historic District Commission and
Brown's Wood Historic District Commission:

The mission of the Lincoln Historic District Commission (HDC/BWHDC) is to preserve

and protect buildings and places significant to the history of the town, through the maintenance and improvement of the distinctive architectural characteristics and settings for such buildings and places, and through the encouragement of sensitive and innovative design compatible with the town's historical development. The HDC administers the town's Historic District Bylaw, including reviewing requests to make exterior alterations to structures visible from a public way, and demolitions within the town's historic districts.

Lincoln Historical Commission:

The mission of the Lincoln Historical Commission (LHC) is to preserve and promote the historical and architectural assets and distinctive qualities of the town and its neighborhoods. The LHC administers two bylaws, the Demolition Delay Bylaw and Neighborhood Conservation District Bylaw, and has oversight for structures located in neighborhoods and areas outside of the town's four historic districts. To achieve its mission, the LHC conducts research, prepares and publishes pertinent materials, coordinates with the Massachusetts Historical Commission and other bodies organized for similar purposes, and explores opportunities to develop preservation solutions. The LHC maintains a program for inventorying significant structures and neighborhoods to raise town awareness and facilitate deliberations about demolition requests.
