The Bluegrass Area Development District is selling property on Trent Boulevard in Lexington following strong opposition from a neighborhood association.
The organization wanted to start a work training program for ex-felons. The District bought the 6.5 acre property in January.
As soon as it became public what the plans were for the property, the River Park Neigborhood Association opposed the plan.
Members were concerned the program would put families safety at risk and lower property values.
After months of opposition, the Bluegrass Area Development District gave up the fight and put the property up for sale.
