Several beautification beds are nearly complete, including this one at the intersection of
Main Street and Newtown Pike.
This fall, Lexington will host thousands of guests from all over the world as they make their way to Central Kentucky for the Breeders’ Cup. Keep Lexington Beautiful (KLB) is working with Lexington’s Division of Environmental Services (DES) to green up and clean up our community as we prepare for the spotlight. KLB has solicited corporate sponsors for the green up work that DES is carrying out. The green up projects are professionally designed wildflower beds along major transportation corridors leading into town that DES will install and maintain. KLB is also organizing a downtown clean up on Monday, October 26 from 1pm to 4pm. Bags, gloves, trash pickers, maps and other supplies will be available for volunteers at Phoenix Park and in front of the Kentucky Theatre. To tie into the Thriller Parade, volunteers are encouraged to come as zombie – though the living are certainly welcome to participate! For more information, visit the Facebook event page.
