Lexington
Citizens' Academy

“It is a tribute to the town that so many dedicated municipal employees shared their expertise with citizens beyond the scope of normal business hours.  Speakers were enthusiastic, well prepared, and clearly dedicated to their respective departments and quality service.”-2013 Lexington Citizens’ Academy Participant

The 5th Annual Lexington Citizens’ Academy concluded on December 2, 2013.  Check back next summer for information on the 2014 Citizens' Academy! 

The Academy begins after Labor Day and features ten evening sessions. 

Do you know:

  • Who builds trails on Conservation lands?
  • What is inside the Police Station?
  • Where you can buy a rain barrel?
  • When you need a building permit?
  • Why a Fire engine responds along with the ambulance?
  • How many different types of Public Works vehicles there are?
  • How the public schools are using technology in teaching?

Participants have the opportunity to engage with Town departments, learn more about the services provided by their local government, and discover new opportunities for public involvement.

There is no fee to attend the Academy, but early registration is recommended as it will be limited to 30 participants!
