The housing panel discussion scheduled for March 13th, 2018 at 8:30 AM has been cancelled due to the impending weather event. This discussion will be rescheduled and re-advertised at a later date, so stay tuned.

Leading into the development of a new Comprehensive Plan, the Town of Lexington would like to invite you to a series of educational panel discussions. These topic-based panels will cover transportation, housing, and economic development.

Supply, demand, and pricing are challenges many communities across the Commonwealth face. Please join us for a discussion that will focus on state and regional housing trends and issues, and what impact they may have on Lexington looking forward.

On Tuesday, March 13, 2018, in the Hudson Room, 1605 Massachusetts Avenue (top floor of Cary Hall), at 8:30 AM there will be a panel discussion focused on regional housing issues and trends. Panelists will include: Barry Bluestone, Northeastern University; Karina Milchman, MAPC; and William Reyelt, DHCD. This is the second panel discussion in a series of six panels.

Please RSVP to:  dfields@lexingtonma.gov or 781-698-4560

Light refreshments will be available.

About the Comprehensive Plan:

The Town's current Comprehensive Plan that guides much of what we do in Lexington is now a 15-year old document. Lexington is a much different town than it was 15 years ago. We have grown in many ways. We face many challenges today that we could not have dreamt about 15 years ago.

The Planning Board, Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee, and Planning Staff have a robust process in place to achieve an update to the Comprehensive Plan that will help guide us through the next 5 to 10-year period. The Comprehensive Plan process has been underway since last summer. The Planning Board has created a top-notch, 13-person, citizen-based Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee to be a conduit for a robust public process.
