The Final Step- We Need Your Voice!

The journey to update the Comprehensive Plan for Lexington-Fayette County is not over yet. Your voice is more important than ever! Make plans to attend the Council Public Hearing on Tuesday, October 24.

The Planning Commission approved Goals & Objectives for the 2018 update, including no expansion of the Urban Services Boundary or the Rural Activity Centers. This was a huge victory, however it was just the first step. It’s now up to the Council.

Throughout the update process, our community has made clear that we want to protect and improve our greenspaces and farmland. We want intentional, planned development that enhances and respects the character of our great neighborhoods. We want transportation and infrastructure improvements to increase our quality of life. The Goals & Objectives adopted by the Planning Commission put us on the right path.


We need YOU to share your voice with Council and urge them to adopt the Goals & Objectives as passed by the Planning Commission.

What can you do to ensure your voice is heard?

  • Attend the Council Public Hearing on Tuesday, October 24th at 5 PM in Council Chambers at the Government Center (200 E. Main St.)
  • Send your councilmember and all 3 at-large councilmembers an email
  • Send your your councilmember and all 3 at-large councilmembers a Tweet or Facebook message
  • Forward this email to your friends and neighbors

It’s critical that councilmembers hear directly from you, so please contact them today and plan to attend the Public Hearing on October 24th. We’re nearly there!

“The Goals & Objectives passed by the Planning Commission lay out an innovative and achievable vision for our community. Maintaining the current Urban Services Boundary and Rural Activity Centers is the key to achieving that vision. We need a long-range plan that focuses on intentional development that enhances and respects the character of our great neighborhoods. We need to properly maintain and improve our existing infrastructure to increase our quality of life. The Planning Commission’s Goals & Objectives put us on the right path. I urge you to adopt them as passed.”
