Republic Services conditional use permit denied

May 4, 2016

Republic Services’ conditional use permit application was presented and reviewed at the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government Board of Adjustment (BOA) hearing last Friday.

The purpose of the permit, according to the application, was “to construct and operate a transfer station, which is a conditional use in the I-2 zone; additionally, a variance to reduce the required landscape buffer area from 15 feet to 5 feet is requested.” 

After two to three hours of presentations and testimonies from both supporters and opponents, the BOA unanimously denied the request.
