LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – City Center lit up the sky last night with its multicolored LED light show. City Center’s artistic lights are part of LexLights! This new initiative by the Downtown Lexington Management District (DLMD) and Downtown Lexington Partnership (DLP) is aimed to illuminate downtown Lexington.
According to the DLMD, cities across the country have been pursuing light-related projects. Lights not only add ambiance, but well-lit cities also witness less crime.
The initiative is to improve lighting in downtown Lexington through two efforts. The first is to create impactful art and festive lighting projects through public-private partnerships. The second is to offer incentives to property owners to repair, replace, or enhance lighting with support from the DLMD and DLP Property Improvement Grant Program.
LexLights! Now joins other lighting projects that have already taken place in Lexington. The historic courthouse is lit, and string lights along Short and Mill Streets offer visibility.
