We want to equip you to advocate for smart, sustainable, and equitable growth.
Subscribe to our emails to stay in the loop about important Council meetings, public hearings, smart growth news, updated research, and events.
Increasing our social media following helps us spread the word about smart growth and helps us build up our supporter base. Follow us and be sure to like, comment, and share our posts — each time you do, it boosts our platforms so we can reach more people.
You can learn more about what smart growth looks like for Lexington-Fayette County by attending our Smart Growth Academy series, or by becoming an official Smart Growth Ambassador. You can also attend our annual fundraiser, the Keeneland Bluegrass International Cup, benefitting us and the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Foundation each year in early September.
We’re always looking for help with our advocacy efforts. We need help tabling at farmers’ markets, hanging fliers around town, and sharing smart growth news on social media. Let us know how you’d like to help.
We are a non-profit that is funded solely by donations from community members. Our mission is to positively impact county-wide planning and zoning policies, through land-use advocacy at City Hall, education in the community, and funding research that creates a better quality of life for all. Monetary donations help us continue our efforts.

Join your Neighborhood Association or start a group in your neighborhood if yours is inactive. Smart growth advocates are an important voice in our local neighborhoods. Let your neighborhood association leaders know that you support smart, sustainable, and equitable growth by reaching out to the Fayette County Neighborhood Council, which often speaks on behalf of neighborhood associations at City Hall.
When there is an important vote on countywide planning and zoning policies at City Hall, it’s important to let your Councilmembers know how you feel about the issue, especially if you are in support of the changes — they often only hear from those who oppose a policy.
