Outside of family and health, having a good job is about the most important thing in life. Everyone in the world wants a good job.
Making sure citizens have the opportunity to compete for good jobs here, and that they are ready to compete, is the fundamental goal of our Economic Development program.
We work to bring economic opportunity and growth to Lexington by making investments in our community to improve the quality of life, which in turn attracts good jobs and new economic growth, making new investments again possible.
It’s a continuing cycle that has brought us low unemployment and rising average incomes. More people are employed in Lexington now than at any time in its history.
