Lexington Previews New Smart Meters! New smart parking meters will be installed in Lexington Center on September 28, 2015 for a three month preview. The smart meters will accept credit card payment and provide useful data to better manage on-street parking. The initial set of 21 new meters will be located along Meriam Street adjacent to the Lexington Visitors Center and along the north side of Massachusetts Avenue near CVS Pharmacy.
Building Department is now taking permit applications through VIEW PERMIT.
Department Of Public Works is scheduling crews to clean the Center area on a regular basis beginning June 22 and continuing until November 13. Workers will come in at 5:00 am on Mondays and Fridays and use a new backpack blower that is less noisy than the previous blowers we were using. This work is important to the overall maintenance and cleanliness in Lexington Center during warmer weather when many people are out and about. Please contact David Pinsonneault, DPW Operations Manager, with any questions or concerns at 781-274-8300 ext. 1 or via email.
