The Town of Lexington is thinking about its future. Proof of this can be found in the Vision Plan that was created in 2011-2012 to provide a “roadmap” for the town’s development over the next 20 years. More than 400 ideas and opinions were shared by residents about the future of their community and its revitalization. Several of the plan’s projects have already been completed, like the Farmers Market that opened on Main Street in 2011, the Lexington Paw Park that opened in 2013, Lexington Square park, which opened downtown in 2012, and the Icehouse Amphitheater, which just opened in 2016.
Lexington is not stopping there; upcoming goals in the Vision Plan include improved traffic flow, better infrastructure, more convenient access to Lake Murray, a new recreational trail system, beautification of the area, and making Main Street into a hub for entertainment, shopping and community activity. At the same time, residents expressed a desire to preserve Lexington’s history, retain its unique rural character, and maintain its small town charm despite all of these big changes. The Vision Plan will work within this cooperative spirit to ensure that Lexington’s future economic prosperity remains connected with its past, and that it’s always a town that its citizens will want to call home.
“I have the utmost confidence in the dedication of the residents, Town of Lexington, and Lexington County to work together and make this community one that will grow, yet keep its longstanding sense of community through family, faith, sports, the arts, and great schools. It is for this reason that McGuinn Hybrid Homes built its Eagle Glen community here – to grow along with it.” – Wade McGuinn, CEO of McGuinn Hybrid Homes
