Your GRI Board agrees this designation will – among other positive attributes:

1) Discourage conflicts related to construction of chain link fencing, above ground pools & accessory structures

2) Enhance property values, and

3) Foster pride in our neighborhood’s future.

Obtaining an ND-1 Overlay requires significant neighborhood input and support. PLEASE DO YOUR PART!

REMINDER! If your property has an accessory structure currently in place, it will not be affected by the Overlay, but will be considered as “nonconforming use” and grandfathered into the coverage.


PETITION

We, the undersigned, are owners of these properties in what is designated as Area 1 on city maps, a section of Greenbrier Estates comprised of 145 large residential lots in the city of Lexington, Fayette County, Kentucky. Units 3A & 3B of Greenbrier, Area 2 on city maps, have already received ND-1 Overlay Zoning that includes the three (3) restrictions listed below. At this time, we request the LFUCG expand this ND-1 Overlay coverage to include our properties in Area 1, to make this part of Greenbrier compatible with other Greenbrier units, and to maintain the integrity of the Greenbrier subdivision.

THE RESTRICTIONS WE NEED ARE:

1. No unattached building additions permitted. This would include, but would not be limited to garages, storage sheds, or any type of shed or building detached from the side or the rear of the house.

2. Above ground pools are not permitted. All pools would need to be constructed so that the water inside the pool is no higher than ground level.

3. All fences must be set back at least as far as the front of the house. Fencing materials cannot include those used to construct what is commonly known as “chain link” fencing.


Please sign, address and return in the enclosed, stamped envelope. Property owners will be notified of the LFUCG’s decision as to whether or not the Planning Commission will allow this PETITION to proceed.

Development Hearing June 8, 2017

A Development Plan Hearing is scheduled for Thursday, June 8, at 1:30 PM.  The meeting location is the LFUCG Council Chambers.  This sign is posted at the intersection of Walnut Grove and Cayman Lane.  The scope of the hearing is not know at this time.  When additional information is received it will be posted.

Update:  An amendment has been proposed to make changes in the recreational trail system.  The surface would change from hard scape to turf.  The Planning Commission would not normally be the venue for this issue.  It was brought before the Commission as this may impact handicapped users of the trails and to discuss responsibility for maintaining the turf.

Information on the trail system is available from:  https://www.lexingtonky.gov/trails

Developers Dream Bill Introduced in Kentucky State House

Click to download: Developers’ Dream Bill
This isn’t the first time a “developer’s dream bill” has come up in State Legislature – 2 years ago it was squashed as an unconstitutional barrier to equal access to the courts.
Although our LFUCG Council has no say in what goes on at State level, representatives from the Fayette County Neighborhood Council (FCNC) sought LFUCG Council’s support in opposing this terrible bill.
Rightly, a majority of CMs realized the bill would place one more hurdle in front of neighborhood associations and individuals seeking access to the Court of Appeals for review of zoning decisions. Though two CMs expressed surprise that HB 72 seemed to come out of “left field”,  our 12th District CM Kathy Plomin supported CM Jennifer Mossotti’s motion to direct the LFUCG lobbyist, Judy Taylor, to convey Council’s decision to State Legislators. VIce-Mayor Steve Kay, CM Richard Moloney, and others spoke eloquently in support of this decision as well. Thanks to all CMs looking out for their ‘hoods!
To voice your opposition, contact Representative Robert Benvenuti at(859) 226-0312
