The Lexington Planning Commission has officially approved the land-use element of the city's comprehensive plan that excludes an "urban reserve" concept and the expansion of the Urban Services Area. Many members of the Thoroughbred community were elated, as an expansion could have negatively affected several local horse farms.
The decision to expand the Urban Service Area in Lexington, a topic that has sparked the interest of hundreds of concerned citizens at a series of community meetings the last two months, has been put on hold until early next year.
An update of the Comprehensive Plan for Fayette County, Ky., has attracted heightened interest from the local horse industry, which has formed the Fayette Alliance to protect farmland.
