Focus on Business: Lexington Mayor Jim Gray on Economic Advancement Efforts
While Lexington and Louisville remain rivals in many areas, the mayors of both cities continue to move forward on a mutually beneficial economic partnership. They formed the Bluegrass Economic Advancement Movement (BEAM). They commissioned the Washington, D.C. think tank, The Brookings Institution, to conduct a study into the feasibility of creating a 22-county economic region, anchored by Lexington to the east and Louisville to the west.
In this week's Focus on Business, Tom Martin discusses some of the study's findings and its vision with Lexington Mayor Jim Gray.
