Wayland is a stable and progressive community, characterized by a legacy of civic engagement and a commitment to citizen self-governance, advised and supported by professional staff. It is a community that thoughtfully plans for its future through the efforts of elected and appointed citizens serving on many boards and committees, embracing Wayland’s history and heritage, protecting its semi-rural character through preservation of open spaces, and valuing its fiscal stability. Most of all, it is a caring community of residents from a variety of religious, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, bound together by a tradition of philanthropy and volunteer spirit. Citizens offer their time and talent to a variety of charitable causes and cultural organizations that make Wayland a wonderful place in which to live.
The Town of Wayland is committed to delivering the highest quality municipal services in a fiscally responsible and an operationally responsive manner to the citizen-customers that it serves. Our residents enjoy a full array of facilities and services including: full-time police and fire protection; award-winning schools for grades kindergarten through 12 (one kindergarten, two elementary, one middle, and one senior high school); street maintenance and snow removal; public health and natural resource protection; elder, youth and veterans services; a full service library; a public beach on Lake Cochituate; and a number of parks, playgrounds, conservation lands, and recreational facilities and programs. The Town also operates its own water supply, purification, and distribution system and provides a solid waste transfer
station and recycling facility for residents on a fee-for-service basis. Wayland offers its residents many educational, recreational and cultural opportunities, both within the community and as part of the greater Boston metropolitan region.
