BREEZE PHOTO BY BILL MURPHY During a stroll on Sunday through the Monastery in Cumberland, KATHY and BOB CARDOSA, of Cumberland, stop to admire the decorated trees in the town's Parks and Recreation Department's annual Christmas tree program. The lighting will be held this Sunday, Dec. 8. See more photos on page 10. Read more about the woman behind the event, Arlene Nunn, in the Christmas in the Valley section inside this week's paper. CUMBERLAND – As if there wasn't enough to be worried about upon heading out the front door each day, Cumberland residents are now warned that nature itself could be coming to get them. "Natural environment. Enter at your own risk," state the new green and white signs at the Cumberland Monastery off Diamond Hill Road. In case residents aren't fully aware of what nature might be ready to hurl at them, there's a lovely picture of a tree above the words. New warning in Cumberland: Now entering nature By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor ethan@valleybreeze.com See NATURE, Page 17 LINCOLN – This holiday season, shoppers headed up Route 116 to what has traditionally been known as the Lincoln Mall will notice some new signage calling it the Lincoln Commons. The new owners of the mall at 622 George Washington Highway, Lincoln Mall Owner LLC and Acadia Realty Trust, announced the name change when purchasing the property for $55.8 million in late June, but the physical manifestation of that change has taken several months. Rebranding of Lincoln Mall nears completion By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor ethan@valleybreeze.com See MALL, Page 16 Three major projects returning to Lincoln Planning Board LINCOLN – In a few weeks, Lincoln's Planning Board is expected to discuss three major developments in town: Whipple-Cullen, Breakneck Hollow and the Walker Street Lofts. All three developers have been working for several months to iron out the kinks in the projects after members of the Planning Board and Technical Review Committee heard their plans. Whipple Cullen Farm project moving forward A year and a half after the Rhode Island State Housing Board of Appeals vacated the town's denial of the project, the Whipple-Cullen Farm Affordable Senior Development is expected to be back on the Planning Board's agenda. The land is owned by John and Barbara Cullen, and has been in John's family for the last 150 years. The develop- ment plans call for 150 age- restricted units, coupled with a conservation area. Cullen's plan was denied by the Planning Board in June 2016, when its six members were split on the maximum number of units the develop- ment should have.
