Commerce Lexington Presents Updates on Regional Competitiveness Plan


In Tuesday’s Budget, Finance, and Economic Development Committee, Commerce Lexington will present an update and overview of their Regional Competitiveness Plan. The Regional Competitive plan sets seven action items to make the greater Lexington area (Bourbon, Clark, Fayette, Franklin, Jessamine, Madison, Montgomery, Scott, and Woodford Counties) a competitive region in attracting new businesses and economic development projects.

Lexington has allocated $322,000 to Commerce Lexington to support the plan. So far, Commerce Lexington has created a “Greater LEX” brand, attended and hosted events across the country to advertise and promote the region, and facilitated twelve new Kentucky Product Development Initiative (KPDI) projects that add improvements to industrial sites in localities that have the most potential for new development.

The Budget, Finance, and Economic Development Committee will meet Tuesday, March 19th at 1pm in Council Chambers. You can attend in-person or watch live on LexTV.
