Welcome to the Lexington Planning Department!
The main function of the Planning Department is to support the efforts of the Planning Board. This generally involves reviewing projects for compliance with the Lexington Zoning Bylaw and the Planning Board's Development Regulations.
The Planning Department occasionally drafts recommendations for zoning amendments and rezoning petitions, and is available to provide general support to residents and developers through the permitting process. The Planning Department also analyzes economic, demographic and development trends occurring in Lexington and the region to assist the planning board, the town manager and other town departments and committees.
The Planning Department produces the annual Zoning Map and prints the Zoning Bylaws.
