EHI Consultants took the lead in developing a small area plan for Lexington’s East End Neighborhood in collaboration with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government.

The planning process involved extensive public involvement, including a two-day planning charrette that engaged neighborhood residents and stakeholders. The charrette sessions and visioning activities attracted significant participation, with over 150 individuals attending the kick-off rally and 75 participating in the charrette sessions. The plan addressed various aspects such as economic opportunities, land use, diversity, infill development, mixed land use, open public space development, social capital, social justice, neighborhood character, and public space and streetscape designs. The plan also included detailed implementation strategies, some of which are currently being measured and implemented. The project received positive coverage in the Lexington Herald-Leader newspaper, highlighting its success and community engagement.
