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.
