The Town of Lexington is in the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan, which was last adopted in 2003. A committee has developed a survey to get feedback from the entire community to help identify and understand your issues and address your concerns and future opportunities for our Town. All members of your household are welcome to fill out this survey. Your answers are important and we appreciate you taking the time to participate. All responses are confidential and all questions are optional. No attempt will be made to identify an individual respondent. However, there is an option to sign up for the Town of Lexington mailing list at the end of the survey.
After the survey results have been tabulated, the Town will host a public meeting to discuss the results as well as discuss the next steps for a Comprehensive Plan update. The date of this meeting will be announced in as many forums as possible.
Thanks to all the healthcare providers, law enforcement, firefighters, EMS, dispatchers, volunteers, essential and front line workers, farmers, truck drivers, our military, their families and so many more.
Prayers for all who are dealing with loss, difficulties, illnesses, healing, our country, Ukraine, the world.
Hope you all have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day holiday.
Until next week take care, be thankful, be courteous, be kind. Your act of kindness may change someone’s life.
