LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – “On The Table Lex” kicked off Sunday afternoon at Shillito Park.

It’s a week-long conversation initiative organized by CivicLex where community members can gather in homes, business, libraries, and parks to discuss how to improve the city.

Leaders want to hear suggestions and utilize them to prepare Lexington’s 2023 comprehensive plan as well as the growths and changes over the next 20 years.

One conversation was around climate change.

A secure, anonymous survey was provided to participants asking how to make Lexington more climate-resilient.

Topics from eating local to maintaining native trees were discussed, but there was another topic that had the most input.

“Increased access to alternative transportation and the feasibility of those transportation options. Particularly the expansion of bike lanes to make them safer for bikers, as well as pedestrians, and pairing that with green space to make it adapted to hotter temperatures that we’ll be experiencing with climate change,” said attendee Claire Hilbrecht.

Those interested can join or host a public, private, or virtual table conversation between now and April 16.
