Today I rode my bike over to the Center to see what was going on. Although still not ready, the contractors have made a lot of progress. Since I will be away next week, this will be my last sneak peek at construction progress before the Center opens on July 6th.

Stopped by the ALMOST FINISHED Lexington Community Center on Friday afternoon June 12 for my weekly look-see. Major progress, still some distance to go. Click here to see some photos I took by looking at the outside and looking into a couple of windows.
Last Tuesday, April 14th, a group of Town Board, Committee, and Staff members went on a tour of the LexCC. Here (http://goo.gl/rFvdau) is a picture report on what we saw in the middle of the renovation.
A large number of Lexington Residents came to the Open House at 39 Marrett Rd, the property that will become the Lexington Community Center. Please click here to see more pictures from the Open House.
I've started developing a 3D model of the developing Center. This will take a while, but I wanted to share what I have come up with so far. Click on the image below to go to a page that shows an interactive version of the model.
This is my first attempt at this. Clearly more architectural features, such as doors and windows are needed to give this a more realistic appearance. I am also working on correcting some problems with the roofing materials used in this model.
Eventually, I hope to model the interior so that you will be able to take virtual tours through the new Lexington Community Center.
On Tuesday, November 19, 2013 the ahCCAC held an information meeting to present initial plans for the LexCC. Like the previous information meeting held in October, the meeting was well attended with about 50 people in the audience. The focus of the presentation was the plan for changes to be made in Phase I construction. Click on the image above to see a video of the presentation.

Lexington Community Center
Welcome to an unofficial , privately developed website about the Lexington Community Center. This is the personal website of Harry Forsdick, a member of the Lexington ad hoc Community Center Advisory Committee (ahCCAC). On this website, I will keep my own personal record of all of the information that has been distributed to the Public as well as Members of the Committee. All of this information is public and as a result, this website could be built by any member of the public, not just a member of the Committee. I am happy to share it with the Lexington community at large.
This website is intended to be a dynamic record of the development of the new Lexington Community Center over the next several years. I will share as much information as I can so that the Lexington Community has a good feel for how things are progressing, what decisions are being made, schedules for when things are happening. To reflect my interest in photography, video and modeling, I will provide pictures of the progress of the build-out as we all get to see them, as well as various video recordings and 3D models relating to the Community Center.
I will be responsible for updating the contents of this website.
There is also an official Town of Lexington ad hoc Community Center Advisory Committee page on the Town's website. The difference between that page and this website is that the Town managed page will have official information while, this website will include the supporting documents used by the committee as well as informal information such as photographs, videos and models explaining what is going on in the construction of the Community Center. In addition, while the Town pages about the ad hoc Community Center Advisory Committee will end when that Committee's work is ended, this website will continue reporting information about the Lexington Community Center.
In addition to the official Ah hoc Community Center Advisory Committee's webpage, there is an excellent page on the Town's Website of the Community Center Task Force (CCTF), the predecessor committee to the current Committee. This page contains many links to the deliberations of the Task Force committee that worked from May 2011 through November 2012.
The CCTF did its work before the property at 39 Marrett Rd. (or 33 Marrett Rd., it's former address before it was renumbered to distinguish it from the Masons building) was purchased by the Town in March 2013. The work of the CCTF serves as an excellent foundation for the ad hoc Community Center Advisory Committee since the needs of the Lexington community were examined without the influence of any existing building constraints. The present Committee will now be able to design the programming to be supported at the Community Center at 39 Marrett Rd. in light of this ideal set of requirements.
