When you think about Lexington’s future, what do you see?
A new survey from the town’s 2020 Vision Committee doesn’t ask that question specifically, put it does pose a series of questions about the town’s future in terms of things like economic development, education, the environment, town government, population diversity and physical characteristics.
The survey, posted online earlier this week, is available on the town website and at www.surveymonkey.com/s/J3DVLZR. It will remain live online until Feb. 20. A printed version of the survey questionnaire will also be made available at the Council on Aging offices, Cary Memorial Library and at the Clerk’s office in Town Hall.
According to a town announcement of the survey, input from residents “will help assure a shared community vision for Lexington’s future.”
From that announcement:
What do you value most about Lexington? What would you change? What is your role in determining Lexington’s future? Living in a vibrant, active and diverse town, Lexington’s residents are invested in maintaining its open character and sense of community. At the same time, Town leaders are aware of the many factors that can influence changes in all aspects of civic and residential life. The Lexington 20/20 Vision Committee was formed by the Board of Selectmen, the School Committee and the Planning Board in 1999 to engage Lexington's citizens in developing a long-term vision for Lexington. The elected boards are specifically hoping to use information from this survey to inform their understanding of community perspectives. The results of this survey will be broadly shared with the community at large and will serve to guide the 20/20 Vision Committee in identifying areas deserving review.
