The Uncommon Commons

New ways to reconnect, reimagine, & respond in a new reality

A “commons” is typically thought of as a physical gathering place for the community to engage and interact, but how do we accomplish these things when our ability to gather physically is compromised?  How do we continue this concept of a “commons”, in an uncommon time?

The Division of Planning is focusing our efforts on producing digital and virtual materials that can be accessed from anywhere, to further Imagine Lexington’s public outreach mission.  These will feature a host of evolving tools that are meant to respond to the real-time needs of our community, including but not limited to:

  • Informational videos
  • Interactive webinars
  • Published online materials
  • Virtual walking tours

We know this is a challenging time, and the Division of Planning is committed to listening.  We will continue to provide educational materials to make our process as open, transparent, and effective as it can be as we move forward together.
