Our Community

Situated in the heart of the Heartland, Lexington is located between Chicago and St. Louis along Interstate 55 and Historic US Route 66. If you are a visitor or a new resident in Lexington, welcome to our website! If you’re returning for additional information then thank you for being active in our community.

These are exciting times in the City. A number of development and community improvement projects are in various stages of planning and approval. Modest, efficient, and sustainable growth is our objective. We want to keep taxes and fees in line while attracting businesses that will meet the needs of our households and encourage residential development to keep our school system thriving.
