Officials say the plan provides a sustainable guide for the next 20 years of development, focusing on providing housing, employment, goods, and services for current and future residents, while retaining the qualities that make Lexington unique and desirable. The plan was developed with the input of over 10,000 residents.

The city is rolling out Phase I of the website known as “Imagine” that includes:

  • A condensed version of the plan
  • Videos to help explain concepts
  • Enhanced navigation to browse the Plan in a variety of ways
  • Archived videos of public hearings
  • Interactive land use maps

Officials say phases II & III of the website, known as “Inform” and “Implement,” will be fully available by the end of 2020 to allow the public to learn about ways to get involved in the planning process, and see the plan in action with updates on metrics, implementation project pages and more.

The public is encouraged to review the website and provide feedback through the “Contact Us” feature, email imagine@lexingtonky.gov or engage with Imagine Lexington on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
