Background

On behalf of the 20/20 Vision Committee, a townwide study was undertaken to identify and better understand areas of interest and concern to residents, and to inform planning and decision-making by the Selectmen, Planning Board and School Board.

The questionnaire was divided into three parts:

  • Part I asked respondents to indicate how important specific issues are to them in preserving or improving Lexington; to evaluate the performance of the Town with respect to each of the issues; and to identify the single most important issue within broad topic areas.
  • Part II asked respondents to prioritize use of resources in an era of tight budgets and increasing demands on those budgets.
  • Part III collected demographic data on respondents.
