A Community Center for Lexington? 
  • Last summer the Board of Selectmen appointed the Community Center Task Force to develop "...a report about the concept of a community center, including recommendations, to serve the intellectual, physical, and social needs of seniors, other adults, teens and youth in our community."

  • The task force has visited centers in other towns, talked to leaders of groups, departments and boards in Lexington.  From this work we have created one vision of how a Lexington community center could be a place where seniors, teens, toddlers, infants, families, and groups of all kinds would find something for them.

  • The committee has been persuaded of the value that a community center could bring to our town. Now we want to know if a community center would be of value to you. 


For many years, Lexington officials and residents have studied and considered whether to build a new senior center and create a teen center.  Now Lexington has decided to change its focus from those individualized solutions to investigate a more general approach to serving the needs of all of Lexington's citizens: a community center.

Thank you,
The Community Center Task Force
