Expanding or Limiting Land Development in Fayette County

 As Lexington prepares to revisit its Comprehensive Plan in 2018, the issues surrounding whether or not the Urban Service Boundary should be expanded are currently being discussed throughout our community.  In early February there were public input sessions at which citizens were invited to express their views on this subject.  To continue this dialogue the Lexington Forum is presenting a diverse group of panelists who will discuss these issues from various points of view.  The panelists are:

  • Susan Speckert, Executive Director of the Fayette Alliance, a citizens group that is focused on land use.
  • William Lear, an attorney with the firm Stoll Keenon Ogden, whose practice incudes representing real estate developers in planning and zoning matters.
  • Phil Holoubek, President of LRC, a downtown real estate, property management and real estate brokerage firm.
  • Jim Duncan, Director of the Division of Planning at the Lexington Fayette County Urban County Government.

 

Please join us for what promises to be an informative discussion of this timely topic.

The Status of Fayette County School System’s Goals and Programs from the Perspective of Superintendent Emmanuel Caulk

 

A champion for children committed to helping every student reach his or her unlimited potential, Fayette County Schools Superintendent Emmanuel Caulk has a track record of success in urban school districts that spans two decades. With teaching and leadership experience at the elementary, middle and high school levels in some of the nation’s largest and most impoverished school districts, Caulk has consistently advanced policies and procedures based on research and best practices to create systems of high expectations and accountability, organizational and governance structures, and metrics to define results.

 

Superintendent Caulk has been leading the Fayette County School system for just over a year and has already launched several exciting initiatives. He will discuss his “Blueprint for Student Success: Achieving Educational Excellence and Equity for All,” that outlines 100 specific strategies in eight pillars of focus that will be completed within the next school year.

 

This presentation will highlight the work that is in-progress to improve the quality of education in Fayette County.
