The Town of Lexington has been fortunate to be a thriving community, especially during the economic downslide of the recession. We have grown by 83% since 2000 and the Urban Land Institute projects the Midlands region will grow another 500,000 residents over the next 40 years.
Due to this unprecedented growth, Lexington County is working to prepare for the future with the Penny for Progress Referendum on the November 4th ballot.
The Town of Lexington has 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 (overall 14); SC Hwy. 6 Median Project from Dreher Shoals Dam to Sunset Blvd. (overall 26); Sidewalk Projects at US-1, Old Chapin Road, Old Cherokee Road, and Saluda Point Dr. (overall 39); and the Cromer Road Sewer Pump Station Project (overall 79).
These projects are critical to address our transportation and infrastructure needs as there is limited, to no funds, to help guarantee these projects will be completed in the near future from the Federal or State level.
We hope that you will educate yourself on the Penny for Progress Project list before you cast your vote. To learn more about the Town of Lexington's five projects, visit our website and click on the Penny for Progress logo.
