Groundwork & Resources

Imagine Lexington is the outcome of over two years of study, deliberation, and public input. Though it is very much its own unique product, it was built with significant support from existing plans and studies that serve to further Lexington’s community vision.  

This plan is also the result of a tremendous amount of groundwork by way of outside research, presentations, work sessions, and committee meetings led by Planning staff, the Planning Commission, and the Urban County Council. 

This page provides links to all supporting plans and archived materials relating to the 2018 Comprehensive Plan’s development process.
