Remember, Lexington was actually founded in 1779 (Although it was named in 1775 and not actually chartered by Virginia until 1782), predating most other cities west of the Appalachian mountains. There never really was a master plan followed in its development. I would guess it wasn't until about the mid 20th century that anyone even thought it might be a good idea to have one. Course by then, the building boom was on.

Wasn't Lexington supposed to get a Trader Joe's in the 500's on Main?

It'll be a long time coming if Lexington gets a Trader Joe's and if there is one built, more than likely it'll be at Hamburg.

A casino that at least offers bingo and slot machines. I know it's unlikely but this would spice things up a bit.

I think what Lexington really needs is a strong job market. The city officials need to do whatever they need to do to attract employers to the city and not just rely on a handfull employers.

When you have a strong job market (meaning $$$ to the residents and the city), everything else will follow.

Beshear & the other crappy Democrats got themselves voted in by promising casinos. Once they got in office, that plan magically disappeared.

Somebody needs to do their research about Lexington....
