Council for the Common Good

The Lincoln Park Council for the Common Good is an advisory group comprised of individuals who are residents and stakeholders of Lincoln Park. It leads the development, implementation and evaluation of the Common Good Initiative. Recommendations from the Council are presented to the Allegany Franciscan Ministries’ board of directors for action.
