My husband and I are moving to the Bismarck area. We are interested in the town of Lincoln. Would appreciate some info about the city govt. and the standard of living there.

It's a suburb of Bismarck, one of the only true suburbs in the state (the others being West Fargo and Prairie Rose, near Fargo). Here's their website:

There are 2 parts to Lincoln. The original Lincoln was a nice little community with starter homes for first time home buyers. Many young families moved there. You got a large yard and a small but comfortable home for a good price. Today, across the road to the north is the newer Lincoln. Tons of nice new homes. To the south of Lincoln, are some sub divisions...tho not really Lincoln, they add to the neighborhood. Again, homes are a little cheaper than in Bismarck (because it is a few miles out)...there is no grocery store, but there are a couple service stations, (one is a new Cenex & convenience store)...a couple restaruants/bar and a clinic. It is so close to Bismarck (only the airport seperates it from Bismarck) and the drive is not much further to the south end of Bismarck, than if you drove from a northern Bismarck neighborhood to the southern side of Bismarck. Unfortunately, No SCHOOL... kids have to attend Bismarck schools. As Lincoln continues to grow... everyone is betting that Lincoln will get their own school (even if it is a Bismarck district school). It does have its own city commision, mayor, couple cops, water and sewer system...but relies on Bismarck (Burleigh rural fire dept). Living in Lincoln is really no different then living in a Bismarck neighborhood.
