Lincoln is located to the west of Highway I-80 on State Route 65 and the towns of Rocklin, Roseville and Citrus Heights. To the slight northwest lies Lincoln Municipal Airport, Lake of the Woods State Wildlife Area, and Beale Air Force Base.

Lincoln is also a suburb of Sacramento, that state capital, and began as a housing development and a bedroom community for the big city 30 miles away.

The suburb also ranks as the third fastest growing city in the United States. Lincoln supports just short of 22,000 households in a 10% increase in 2009 over the previous year, with a US Census estimate of over 43,000 residents. The population count has held steady through 2016.

LSV and NEV

My friends at the local Tesla electric car plant in Ohio tell me that a low-speed vehicle (LSV) is a street-legal 4-wheeled vehicle with a maximum speed of about 25 mph or 40 km/h. They are a bit faster than the golf cart or neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV), so they can travel on more roadways.

Lincoln Electric Vehicles (NEVs) Save Money

Low-Speed Vehicles (LSVs) in Lincoln are electric and designated as street-legal with a maximum speed of 25 to 35 mph, the speed limit of local residential settings.

Starting at a cost of just over $6,000, the vehicles are low-cost to charge (50 cents in 2010), and low-cost to insure (half the premium of a gasoline auto).

These vehicles are a little larger than golf carts and have headlights, tail lights, and other automobile features.

In Lincoln, most malls provide customers with convenient LSV charging outlets top charge batteries while they shop. Specially dedicated park-and-charge parking spaces are marked "NEV" on the asphalt.

These vehicles have been put to use as personal transportation, as police vehicles in pedestrian locations, and even as food vendors' wagons.

Beale Air Force Base

Help to Haiti

Beale AFB is home to the U-2 Dragonlady that provides high-altitude, all-weather surveillance and reconnaissance, 24/7 wherever needed. One of these U-2 Dragon Ladies was launched from Beale on January 27, 2010 in order to capture critical imagery to help the Humanitarian Relief Mission of the US armed services in Haiti.

Service men and women from the various Missions at Beale AFB volunteered for duty in the ground level humanitarian efforts for Haiti and took off for Florida on January 27 to spend many hours helping. Since that time, they have been involved in other humanitarian and community efforts.
