Lake Auburn Community Center

The Lake Auburn Community Center is located at 115 North Auburn Road at the historic West Auburn Farm site, now 6 acres with about 275 feet of road frontage.  It serves as the gateway to Auburn’s community forest surrounding lake Auburn for the neighboring community and to local clubs and organizations.  The Perkins Ridge Sno-Travelers currently store their trail groomer and signing inventory on site.  Also Cub Scout Packs from Auburn and Turner have used the property and others are encouraged to do so.  Additional future uses include a tree nursery (already in progress) and a two hundred year old barn ( 34 x 36 ) restoration project that will bring meeting rooms and storage opportunities for clubs and organizations.  The property is owned by the Lake Auburn Watershed Neighborhood Association (LAWNA) a 501c3 charitable organization established in August of 2007 and managed by the independent Lake Auburn Community Center committee.

An Invitation to Join In the Community Discussion About Lake Auburn – JOIN US!

We wanted to take a moment to talk about our community water source… beautiful Lake Auburn! As many of you are well aware, the Lake Auburn Watershed Protection Commission (LAWPC) owns (or controls through easement) approximately 2,000 acres of forest surrounding our lake. Historically, LAWPC felt the best option to protect was to keep bordering land off limits. The thought process is changing. LAWPC is now looking to partner with the community by correcting existing trails, improving the treatment of the trails, and adding signage. I invite you to think about what the Lake means to you beyond being our community water source. Is it the recreational piece for you, or the environmental piece, or a combination of both? Whatever your position we can all agree it is a great resource so close to home and your participation in these discussions is important! You all have a right to be heard! Please come to one of the upcoming public sessions to discuss the best use of the property and access points. Tuesday 4/28 6:30pm at USM-Lewiston RM 108 & Saturday 5/2 9AM @ CMMC, RM... read more
