First, need for greed in downtown Lexington:
Business owner Joe Rosenberg has filed for demolition permits for four buildings on South Limestone, in the block where a 40-story hotel and condominium complex have been proposed, while activity among preservationists has increased to save the historic structures on the block…….
About a dozen historic structures are in the block bounded by Vine, Main, Upper and Limestone streets.
Then there is the story of one woman’s vision in Frankfort:
The look and feel of a nostalgic older neighborhood is what Kathy Carter wanted to create. She owns and has renovated eight of the homes along the historic street.
”I knew I wanted a neighborhood where people could sit on the porch and talk to each other,“ said Carter, who also is a city commissioner. ”It's not just a rental place; it's a home.“
Think about it.
