District 3

About the 3rd District

Lexington’s 3rd District serves a diverse constituency in the heart of the city, covering downtown high-rises and businesses, the University of Kentucky, the UK-LFUCG Arboretum, many historic homes, Nicholasville road venues, new infill developments, and local Chevy Chase shops. 

Neighborhood Development Funds

Limited City Council funds are available to local registered non-profits like Neighborhood Associations and 501(c)3 organizations to support programs and projects in the 3rd District. In the past, these funds have been used to support things like tree planting initiatives, arts initiatives, and non-profit programming.

If you would like to request consideration for Neighborhood Development Fund monies, you can email the 3rd District Council Office with your request.

Request for road work

Each of the 12 District Council Offices receives funding for paving roads in their district ranked categorized as "local". The paving cycle occurs in seasons, with a spring paving season and a fall paving season.

The 3rd District Council Office can also pass along any concerns or requests for road work, such as pothole filling. Please fill out the form below with any requests for paving or road attention you have for a given road.

We are asking that you tell us the name of the road as well as the two roads bounding that segment for paving. For example, if you would like to request paving for Euclid Ave, the bounding roads might be Rose St and High St.

We are requesting a rough address for pothole repair. For example, if there is a pothole on Oldham Ave, we'd like to know the closest address on Oldham or the nearest cross street.

LFUCG is not able to pave State owned roads. The 3rd District Office does not select roads categorized as collector or higher; the Division of Environmental Quality and Public Works (EQPW) responds to those requests. For example, the Council Office could pave Boonesboro Ave, but EQPW would be responsible for Walton Ave, and the State of Kentucky would be responsible for Richmond Road and Winchester Road.

If you email us a concern about a State owned road or a road paved by EQPW, we will direct those requests to the responsible party.

Go here to let us know about roads that need work.
