We fund research to provide objective data to support our advocacy work and inform decisions around land-use policy in Lexington-Fayette County.
It’s not “if” we grow, it’s “how.” Fayette Alliance focuses on “how” we grow by working with experts to conduct research on the complex issues facing our community’s development.
By basing our positions on objective research and studies, Fayette Alliance advocates for intentional growth strategies that leverage, not threaten, the things that make Lexington a great place to live, work, and play.
By compiling facts related to our land-use and economic development, Fayette Alliance keeps you and our decision-makers better informed.
By advocating for data-driven policies and laws, Fayette Alliance promotes real change.
By sponsoring research related to local land-use and economic development, we encourage data-driven policies and solutions for our citizens.
