Mornings With Planning- Infill and Redevelopment: Lexington’s Responsible Growth & Evolution

Fayette Alliance Executive Director will be a panelist on “Mornings with Planning” 

Infill and Redevelopment: Lexington’s Responsible Growth & Evolution
Wednesday, January 6, 2021

In response to the pandemic, the Division of Planning has begun a new initiative called the Uncommon Commons. They are producing digital and virtual materials that can be accessed from anywhere, to further Imagine Lexington’s public outreach mission during this uncommon time when we cannot meet in person. This panel discussion is part of “Mornings with Planning”, a series of monthly discussions on a variety of topics that are digitally hosted by Planning on the first Wednesday of the month.

Lexington instituted the first urban services boundary (USB) in the country in 1958, which effectively directed where growth would and would not be permitted. Since then, city officials and residents have been committed to responsible growth that limits unchecked suburban sprawl. Pursuing this strategy means that infill (filling in the vacant land with development) and redevelopment are vitally important to Lexington’s continued growth.

Expert panelists:

  • Dudley Webb, Chairman and Co-Founder, The Webb Companies
  • Brittany Roethemeier, Executive Director, Fayette Alliance
  • Harold Baillie, AICP, Planner Senior, City of Lexington
  • Tom Harrington, Jr., Director of Acquisitions, Core Spaces
