By September 14, 2020September 25th, 2020No Comments
We invite you to Idea Week, the first round of public input for Grow With Us, Lexington County’s comprehensive planning process. Whether you live or work in Lexington County, we need you as a partner – to share your ideas which will help shape the future of Lexington County.


Seven virtual meetings will take place across the County from October 19-22, 2020. Each meeting will focus on one of the seven planning areas of Lexington County. You are encouraged to attend one or more meetings for the planning areas that you live in, work in, or are simply interested in sharing ideas about. If you aren’t sure which planning area you are located or interested in, please use the reference map below to locate your preferred planning area.

What to expect: During this one-hour virtual event, you will learn about the Grow With Us process and the existing conditions and trends affecting Lexington County. Participants will also engage with each other in small group discussions focusing on key questions about the County and planning area. All virtual meetings will have the same format. Certain aspects of the meetings will be tailored to the specific planning area (i.e. existing conditions presentation).
