Main article: Cityscape of Lexington, Kentucky
Lexington features a diverse cityscape. Forbes has ranked Lexington 10th place in the world’s cleanest cities.
Lexington must manage a rapidly growing population while working to maintain the character of the surrounding horse farms that give the region its identity. In 1958, Lexington enacted the nation’s first urban growth boundary, restricting new development to an urban service area (USA). It set a strict minimum area requirement, currently 40 acres (160,000 m2), to maintain open space for landholdings in the rural service area. In 1967, the USA was decreased in area; various zoning regulations were also amended from the original 1958 issue.
In 1980, the comprehensive plan was updated: the USA was modified to include urban activity centers (UACs) and rural activity centers (RACs). The UACs were commercial and light-industrial districts in urbanized areas, while RACs were retail trade and light-industrial centers clustered around the Interstate 64/Interstate 75 interchanges.
