The Lamoine Select Board has appointed the Community Center Feasibility Study Committee to explore the possibility of a community center and what it might entail. The desire for a community center was expressed by many residents in survey responses and public meetings intended to solicit input for the Comprehensive Plan. The Study Committee is sponsoring this survey to collect information that will improve our understanding of the range of needs that might be served by a community center, whether there is support for a community center, and how it would be used if one were built. All responses will remain anonymous. The survey takes 10–15 minutes to complete (there are 22 questions), and it will be available for online responses through ****date, 2019. Thank you for providing your feedback. If you have additional comments that you would like to share with the Study Committee, we welcome you to attend one of our meetings.
