Code of Conduct

The Lexington Community Center (LCC) is supported by the taxes and charitable contributions of the people of Lexington. During visits to the LCC, patrons can expect a safe, clean, comfortable, and welcoming place for recreation, leisure activities, educational opportunities, programs, meetings, studying, reading, and socializing. The LCC Code of Conduct was established to ensure the rights and safety of building users and staff, and to preserve and protect LCC materials, equipment, facilities, and grounds. These rules, along with other LCC policies, will be applied in a fair and reasonable manner. 

Patrons are expected to be respectful, courteous, and considerate to each other and to the staff at all times. Disruptive or inappropriate behavior that infringes on others who use the LCC will not be tolerated.  Individuals who do not respect these expectations may be asked to leave the LCC, have their privileges suspended, or be subject to legal action. The LCC staff reserve the right to determine if other actions not listed below constitute “disruptive or inappropriate behavior.” 

Disruptive or inappropriate behavior that infringes on others’ use or right to use the Center will not be allowed.  Some examples of disruptive or inappropriate behavior include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  • Smoking, using alcohol, or any other controlled substance.
  • Stealing, damaging, altering, or other inappropriate use of the Center facilities or equipment.
  • Distributing leaflets, collecting signatures, or soliciting patrons within the Center facility or on walkways immediately adjacent to the Center entrances. 
  • Using personal electronic and communication equipment in a manner that disturbs other Center users.  (Devices that play music may be used with headphones so long as the volume does not disturb others. Cell phones may be used so long as their use does not disturb others.)
  • Interfering with others’ use of the Community Center, its services and materials.
  • Interfering with the staff members’ ability to perform their responsibilities.
