(Lexington, KY) – Fayette County Property Valuation Administrator David O’Neill today announced the debut of a new feature on FayettePVA.com which allows for easy access to up-to-date information on commercial property sales. These new electronic reports will allow users to view and download monthly sales data on commercial property of all types, including multi-family residential units and vacant land sales. The announcement was made during a presentation to the Commercial Property Association of Lexington, and is yet another significant improvement in open data and transparency in local government.
Similar reports for residential property debuted in June 2012, and are updated to FayettePVA.com each Friday morning.
