"> OpenLexington


Working to promote transparency and empower citizens through open data.

From 2010 to 2018, OpenLexington volunteers lent their talents to build meaninful and useful projects that sought to engage in the public discourse and inform the people of Central Kentucky of how a more open local government can have an impact in their community.

However, due to a lack of available budget and dwindling engagement, OpenLexington no longer meets on a regular basis.

Volunteers and Organizers can be reached via Slack. Get an invite to our Slack group here.

Our code is available for reuse on GitHub.

Notable applications created during this period include GetHelpLex, What's My District, and Lexington Underutilized Properties.
