LexRecNeeds - Community Needs Assessment

Hashtag LexRecNeeds

LexRecNeeds aims to engage the public to better understand the communities needs as it relates to parks, recreation programs and facilities in Lexington as we build a shared vision for the future. With the help of PROS Consulting, we will be using data and best practices to predict trends and patterns of use to identify unmet needs in the community.

The public's feedback will help us shape programs and services in the years ahead, as we continue our work to meet the diverse needs of our community.

At the end of this process, we will have developed a strategic action plan that will help drive short and long-term decision making for our parks, recreation programs, and facilities and will reflect the community's values.
