(Lexington, KY) – Continuing his ongoing effort to make public information more easily accessible, Fayette County Property Valuation Administrator (PVA) David O’Neill announced that new overlay zoning information – Neighborhood Design Character, Paris Pike Corridor and Courthouse Area Design - will “go live” today on www.FayettePVA.com.
“Adding the overlays to the PVA web site gets us closer to my goal of making the PVA web site the one-stop source for information on every parcel of real property in Lexington,” said O’Neill.
The Neighborhood Design Character overlay (ND-1) allows residential or non- residential/commercial areas to place restrictions on development in order to protect the visual harmony and characteristics of the area. The Courthouse Area Design overlay encourages downtown redevelopment while preserving the unique features of the area in accordance with the LFUCG Comprehensive Plan. The Paris Pike Corridor overlay recognizes and addresses the special characteristics of lands along rural transportation arteries.
Primary zoning information is already available on the PVA web site, along with the Historic District Overlay added in October 2009. Future data additions may include expansion area zoning and infill and redevelopment zoning.
“We received a great response in October with the Historic District overlay. Hopefully visitors to our web site will appreciate this additional information,” O’Neill said. “We continue to receive numerous requests for this data, and we are very pleased to be able to make it available.”
The Kentucky Constitution designates the PVA offices as the administrators of "ad valorem" taxes, including residential, tangible and commercial property taxes as well as setting taxable values on vehicles and watercraft. The Fayette PVA Office is dedicated to assessing property in the most fair, equitable and timely manner possible.
