prevent B-3, highway service business, zone approval on the Paris Pike historic corridor

This petition had 75 supporters

A zone change from residential, R1-B to B-3 (interstate commercial) for this piece of property could, potentially, create the domino effect of commercial development, as it is the first on the historic Paris Pike Corridor. It will impact my neighborhood (Joyland), as well by making it a traffic nightmare for those of us who normally utilize Paris Pike.

A public hearing has been scheduled for 2300 Paris Pike, on Sept 12, 2017 at 5PM, in The Government Building, on the corner of MLK and Main, on the 2nd floor in council chambers.  We need a full house of objectors to this zone change. We need at least 1,000 signatures on our petition, too.

Supporters of this cause are the many farm and home owners who make up the Paris Pike Corridor, the residents of the few ecletic neighborhoods that border the Corridor and some of the founders of the fight to protect Paris Pike and her history.

If we are able to stop our city council from approving this zone change it may be as historic a decision, as the Paris Pike Corridor is, itself. Lexington, KY is known as "Horse Capital of the World." Paris Pike has some of the most beautiful and iconic horse farms, , Fairway Farm, Gainesway Farm, Payson Stud, Elmendorf Farm, Spendthrift Farm, Millennium Farms, ...The list is immense. The Paris Pike corridor has national recognition and is the gateway to, not only Lexington, KY but to Paris/Bourbon County.

Historic corridors need protection and neighborhoods that dot this country need protection, too, from encroachment by developers, big box stores, fast food and drive through businesses. 

Please help with this cause. Central Kentucky, Thoroughbred owners, trainers, and workers, equine lovers, green space proponents, and all who have driven the Paris Pike Corridor, who love it's beauty and freedom, SIGN THE PETITION TO STOP THE ZONE CHANGE FROM R1-B TO B-3 FOR 2300 PARIS PIKE and show up for the meeting.
