The Board of Selectmen has appointed a committee to continue the process of developing a plan to insure that Lyme has sufficient space, operating capacity and infrastructure support to meet anticipated demand for services at both the town hall and library.

Providing the community with timely information as the process evolves and developing a broad based consensus shall be one of the key committee responsibilities.
