Input sought on Urban Service Boundary expansion draft designs

Residents are invited to view and provide input on the draft designs for growth in Fayette County during an open house Monday, July 15 from 2 – 7 p.m. at the Lexington Senior Center, 195 Life Lane.

The Urban County Council voted to approve expanding the boundary in June of 2023. Lexington's Planning Commission recommended a 2,800-acre expansion of the Urban Service Boundary (USB) in five locations across Fayette County. The USB identifies the part of the county where urban services (including city garbage collection, streetlights and street sweeping) are provided and a higher density for development is allowed. 

The designs include walkable town centers, neighborhoods and businesses. They also include roads, trails, green space, parks and other quality of life elements. The Urban Growth Master Plan team will be at the open house to guide residents through the plans and answer questions.

Lexington’s Division of Planning, working with a team of consultants, will present the final plan for growth in October 2024.

More information about the 2024 Urban Growth Master Plan can be found at urbangrowthlex.com.
