Lincolnshire was incorporated as a Village on August 5, 1957 under the sponsorship of the Cambridge Forest Association, a non-profit community organization. In the election held to decide incorporation, a total of 91 votes were cast. Seventy-six votes were cast in favor with fifteen votes opposed. The Village adopted a Council-Manager form of government by ordinance in 1976. Under this plan, the Mayor and six Trustees are elected at-large to set policy and approve agreements and expenditures for the Village and appoint a Village Manager who is responsible for day-to-day operations. Lincolnshire is a Home Rule municipality. Lincolnshire’s original incorporated land area was approximately .4 miles. This is the area bounded by Riverwoods Road to the east, the homes on Cambridge Lane to the south, the Des Plaines River to the west, and Route 22 (with the exception of Stonegate Circle and Deerfield Woods) to the north. In 1970 Lincolnshire covered 2.1 square miles and in 2009 the land area is 4.58 square miles which includes 38 miles of streets. In 1957, at the time of incorporation, the Village’s population was 237. In 1970, its population had grown to 2,531, and in 2010 the population was 7,275. Lincolnshire Today Lincolnshire is located along I-94 in Lake County, Illinois, part of a growing metropolitan Chicago. The distance to downtown Chicago is approximately 34 miles. The residential character is largely one-half acre lots and larger, although there are several planned unit developments of greater density. Most of the residential development is east of the Des Plaines River which travels through Lincolnshire. West of the river, the residential population is complemented by a growing commercial and corporate office tax base. This includes a Marriott Resort, several restaurants and retail areas, and a corporate center. Additionally, award-winning Adlai E. Stevenson High School, with a current enrollment of 4,300 students, is located on the west side of the Village..
