New Year, New Opportunities

Several Chamber programs and recent additions offer possibilities for growth as the new year begins.

We've begun a campaign to promote our current Lexington CONNECT program for 2019, appealing to entrepreneurs looking for affordable business space. The program was launched in the spring of 2017 and as a result several Lexington properties were leased or sold in the downtown area.

Recent updates of new listings and reduced pricing on several buildings creates new entrepreneurial opportunity and we are anxious to get the word out as 2019 begins.

The acquisition of the Chamber's trolley adds possibilities to draw visitors to Lexington along with the benefit of partnering with wineries and other businesses, creating new area destinations. We're working on "packaging" these partnerships into day trips for groups as trolley marketing begins during 2019.

Finally, our events are designed to drive people (and commerce) to town. As planning begins for the new year, we're dedicated to sponsoring events that best impact our business community.

The recent increase in sales tax revenue is also an indicator that Lexington is on a track for growth. This fact is convincing leverage when businesses look at Lexington as a potential location to set up shop or relocate. The Chamber will work hard in 2019 to put a priority on attracting new businesses to Lexington, generate interest and commerce and find new ways to nurture and support our members.
