EHI led the team responsible for the development of a small area plan for Lexington’s East End Neighborhood in coordination with Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government.
The comprehensive neighborhood plan was completed in two phases. EHI was involved with facilitating extensive public involvement of neighborhood residents and stakeholders. This process was largely successful with more than 150 individuals turning out for the kick-off rally and 75 for the initial visioning session as well as favorable articles in the Lexington Herald-Leader newspaper and by downtown associations.
In addition to public involvement, the plan encompasses the examination of economic opportunities, diversity issues, infill development; mixed land use, open public space development, social capital and neighborhood character development. Prior to this project, EHI developed the feasibility study for this East Third Street area, identifying the need for retail and residential development within the East Third Street Corridor
