Why Armstrong Mill West Area?
The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Planning Commission and Division of Planning identified the Armstrong Mill West Area for further study in the 2013 Comprehensive Plan. Â The purpose of the small area plan is to guide growth for development and to promote neighborhood stabilization and revitalization. The planning process will help to identify community needs, opportunities, and other planning issues that, along with neighborhood input, will inform strategies for land use, community design, walkability, increased mobility and accessibility to alternative transportation, and healthy foods. The planning process will also identify opportunities for infill and redevelopment to enhance the neighborhoodâs sense of place.
