Event Date: 
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 - 7:00pm

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 have covered transportation, housing, and economic development.

Greater Boston’s regional economy is strong with growing job numbers and shrinking unemployment. This growth is about more than generating tax revenue, it also about creating a community that can attract and retain a strong commercial presence.

On Wednesday, June 13, 2018, at the Lexington Department of Public Works, 201 Bedford Street, at 7:00 PM there will be a panel discussion focused on regional economic development issues and trends. Panelists will include: Amanda Chisholm, MassDevelopment; Nate Robertson, City of Haverhill, MA; and BrannerStewart, UMass Donahue Institute. This is the sixth panel discussion in a series of six panels.

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.
