"As a professional planner, former Planning Board chairperson, and current Permanent Building Committee member, I find it encouraging that the Planning Board is having a competitive race for two seats.
I strongly encourage you to consider Tina McBride for the Lexington Planning Board. Tina has worked on zoning and regulatory issues in Lexington for 10 years and brings a fresh new perspective to the land use, zoning and development opportunities facing the citizens of Lexington."
Fred Merrill, FAICP
For the last ten years, I have observed Tina’s work as a Town Meeting Member and on zoning/planning issues. Tina is gifted with the trifecta needed for this demanding Board position:
1) She understands Lexington’s zoning history and has a sustainable and inclusive vision for its future;
2) She prepares fully before making decisions and monitors successes in other communities;
3) She views listening to others as one of the major responsibilities of representing her constituents.
