We appreciate the approximately 35 people that attended the open forum including representatives from the sheriff’s office, board of supervisors, lexington police, key landlords, key student off-campus houses, and neighbors throughout the community. Richard and David did a particularly good job of explaining the CCC mission, accomplishments, and initiatives. The conversation allowed for people to share points and counter-points in a way that was helpful to everyone understanding the bigger picture. The important sentiment that came from the meeting is that there is definitely a way for W&L students to have parties that are fun without the need for citations. The key issues seemed to be event management, improving the expected behavior of party guests, and building relationships between students, neighbors, and law enforcement. We are making progress.
