Being a good neighbor

Expectations of our neighbors vary from person to person. For some, a good neighbor is one who takes time for chats across the fence, or who helps with the chores when a neighbor is ill. For others, a good neighbor is one who leaves us alone.

Although we don’t agree on all of the fine points of neighborliness, we do tend to agree on certain basic standards that allow residents to enjoy their homes and property, preserve peace and quiet in our neighborhoods, help maintain property values and prevent disputes among neighbors.

The people of Lexington have enacted these standards into law. Below are links to these “good neighbor ordinances.”
