Georgetown Growth Committee to look at preserving green space

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - As Georgetown and Lexington continue to grow toward one another, Scott County officials are talking about the need to maintain an undeveloped buffer between the two cities.

The Georgetown News-Graphic reports that the Georgetown-Scott County Planning Commission is seeking seven to nine members for a committee to study green space issues along U.S. 25 South.

Scott County Judge-Executive George Lusby says green space is important to preserve the central Kentucky county's heritage and picturesque countryside of horse farms and tobacco fields.

Lusby says it's hard to tell there's a separation between Lexington and Nicholasville to the south, and he doesn't want to see the same thing happen in Scott County.

Officials say the committee created to study green space issues may start meeting in late November or early December.
