The Development Handbook

Getting to Know Lexington's Planning Processes

The Development Handbook is a direct implementation of Imagine Lexington, the City’s 2018 Comprehensive Plan, which calls for intentional efforts to make the development process more accessible to the public. The newly released guide will serve those interested in navigating the Division’s many processes relating to development, subdivisions, zone changes, and more.

The purpose of the Development Handbook is to:

  • Make the development review process more accessible and better for all members of the public and developers
  • Provide guidance and information on planning processes to meet the needs of new and experienced developers; and
  • Increase transparency and legibility for the public.
