About Council District 6

The sixth district is located on the ancestral homelands of the Adena, Cherokee, Hopewell, Osage, Shawnee, and Yuchi peoples. It stretches along Lexington's north and east sides with Paris Pike, Winchester, Liberty, Man O'War, and Bryan Station roads as major corridors.

Cultural and socioeconomic diversity distinguishes this vibrant district. Residents speak a variety of languages, including Chinese, English, French, Spanish, Swahili, and Vietnamese, among others. Additionally, it is a wonderful place to learn, play, and work! The district houses 13 Fayette County Public Schools with 15 programs within them, six city parks, and many small and large businesses.

Some highlights of the sixth district include the Brighton Rail Trail, Hamburg Pavilion, a regional retail center that provides shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities for thousands from across Lexington and neighboring counties, and the Hamburg Place Horse Cemetery, which houses the remains of some of racing’s most famous thoroughbreds and several Kentucky Derby winners.
