Community Profile
Lexington is located in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region with a college town atmosphere. It is the second-largest city in Kentucky and the 61st largest in the United States. This quaint city has a quality of life that is tough to match with a revitalized and vibrant downtown, a lush and idyllic countryside, great schools, and amenities found in much larger metro areas. Indulge in delightful dinning, shopping, galleries, walking tours, parks, murals, and historic sites newly revamped with finishing touches or new residential developments, as the number of downtown residents continues to rise. On almost every downtown street, historic structures are being renovated and finding new life as commercial space, or a welcoming home to a new family. It is known as the “Horse Capital of the World,” but you don’t have to be an avid racehorse fan to enjoy the natural beauty, culture, and history that this exciting city has to offer. Lexington is a great place to live, work, and raise a family.

An excellent competitive compensation package will be offered to the selected candidate.
