Proposed Lincoln Project Combines Farm and Urban Housing

Posted on Mar 14 2017 - 5:41pm by UOG


A developer is planning a project in north Lincoln that would combine urban housing and working farms, merge small cottages with traditional single-family homes, maintain a wetland area and encourage composting.

…”about two-thirds of the development will be green space and could potentially be used for community gardens, fruit trees and large animals, and composting would be encouraged to improve the soil for gardening.

He said turning some of the area into a working farm will ease the difficulty of sustaining the property financially. He also said some housing will be laneway cottages, which are smaller houses but still bigger than tiny homes. The laneway cottages with single-stall garages are expected to sell for around $150,000.”
