Businesses are extremely important to the Town of Lexington.
By providing employment opportunities to residents of the community and by generating the flow of cash back into the community, they help the region remain economically stable and vital.
By partnering with local non-profit organizations and schools, they serve many community needs that would otherwise go unmet.
By locating close to the town's numerous neighborhoods, businesses help with "smart growth" endeavors that translate into more people working in close proximity to where they live, which helps reduce the strain on public infrastructure and increases the quality of life of those who choose to forgo long commutes.
And by keeping attractive storefronts, businesses enhance the Town of Lexington's aesthetic character and beauty.
In short, businesses do a lot that helps make the town an attractive place to live and work.
