"Better Conversations, Better Cities"

The Town of Lexington, along with Lexington County, has seen unprecedented growth since the turn of the century. As our population grows, so does the demand for infrastructure and maintaining the highest quality of life possible. To ensure we can provide these services, Lexington County Council has placed the Penny for Progress referendum on the November ballot for citizen vote.

The Penny for Progress initiative pinpoints the most needed improvements throughout the county and have placed them on one ballot referendum, so you the citizen, can determine how we grow in the future.

The Town of Lexington had five projects on the list, including the overall number one priority project:

Mineral Springs Road Realignment at Sunset Blvd. and Hope Ferry Road. Additional projects include Dreher Street Relocation; SC Hwy. 6 Median Project from Dreher Shoals Dam to Sunset Blvd.; Sidewalk Projects at US-1, Old Chapin Road, Old Cherokee Road, and Saluda Point Dr.; and the Cromer Road Sewer Pump Station Project.

As you can see the Town of Lexington has focused on our infrastructure needs to help prepare for the future. We hope that you will educate yourself on the Penny for Progress Project list before you cast your vote in November.
