Lincoln Park Consolidated Plan Survey
The City of Lincoln Park is asking for your input to help guide our community development funding priorities. Feedback collected from the community over the next months will provide direction for the development of a 2021 - 2026 Consolidated Plan for the City of Lincoln Park. This plan establishes goals and funding options for the five-year timeframe. This survey is one avenue that the community can provide input toward the 2021 - 2026 Consolidated Plan development process.

This survey is not intended to be statistically valid. It is one of several resources the City of Lincoln Park uses to help determine community needs and interests.

This anonymous survey is expected to take minutes and will close on Friday, April 9, 2021. In addition to the general information collected, there are questions regarding the priority of the main sections of eligible Community Development Block Grant projects. You may answer all the questions or just skip to the section that interests you most. However, we ask that all respondents answer the first two questions. Although the survey is anonymous, the first two questions will help the City of Lincoln Park measure how well it gathers diverse public input and will assist in the data analysis.

Curbside Etiquette:
Why Was My Rubbish Collection Not Picked Up?
One of the most common reasons why our rubbish collection contractor misses pickups is because they simply did not see it!

It is important to place your cart so that the opening faces the street with the lid completely closed to avoid rubbish from falling in to the street. Be mindful to make sure the cart is not blocked by a vehicle or other curbside items.

Yard waste must be placed in designated paper yard waste bags or properly marked containers. Yard waste stickers are available at City Hall.

The yard waste truck will not stop to look in unmarked containers. All branches and twigs need to be cut in 3 foot lengths and bundled with twine. Filled bags must be less than 50 lbs. Please remember, dirt is not considered yard waste and will not be accepted.
Reminder: Residents can only put out ONE bulk item per week.
An example of this would be only ONE of the following items: a mattress set, a couch, carpet cut and rolled into 3 foot sections, or two additional 35-gallon size containers or bags weighing 60 lbs. or less.
If your trash, recycling, or yard waste was not picked up please contact:
Lincoln Park Department of Public Services (313) 386-9000 or
Lincoln Park City Management (313) 386-1800 ext. 1231
