Planning for the Future - Lexington Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan for Lexington is now 15 years old. It is time to craft (or design) a new "visionary plan for the future physical development of Lexington". Town Meeting approved the request to update the plan, but what exactly is involved in the process?

Planning Director David Kucharsky and Assistant Town Manager for Development Carol Kowalski will discuss the mechanics on the process of updating the present Comprehensive Plan. Then, Transportation Manager Susan Barrett will explain the Tri-Town Efficiency and Regionalization Transit Study.

Both departments are working together on community outreach through public meetings and surveys, to ask each resident and Lexington business employee for their input in the plan.
