Meet the demand for housing across all income levels.
This Comprehensive Plan does not seek to be antagonistic toward growth and new residential development; on the contrary, continued growth is vitally important and Lexington should encourage intense (re)development in the most appropriate areas to provide housing for all. Lexington must provide overall housing affordability, primarily through an abundant supply of new construction that puts a downward pressure on rents of existing units. Imagine Lexington implementation calls for a top-down review of the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations in an attempt to create new housing opportunities, as well as to streamline permitting and review processes. This process began in 2017 with the amendments to the Commercial Center (B-6P) zone, as well as changes to how Final Record Plats are reviewed.
