New 500 Lot Subdivision for Lexington?


Residential developers are trying to buy Barr Pond and land surrounding it — an area the Lexington Wildlife Chapter has called home since 1955.

Lexington Town Council voted 3-1 on April 1 to approve the sale of the 119-acre pond, also known as Wildlife Lake, and the five acres of land near the pond that the town owns.

SCE&G also plans to sell 11 acres, according to a report in The State.

Members of the Lexington Wildlife Chapter boat and fish on the pond and use the area to take children and seniors on educational tours. They also have a clubhouse on the property where they’ve held benefits for the children’s home, Riverbanks Zoo and other organizations.

“We value that pond for what we can contribute to the community through that pond,” member Ben Knight said at the April 1 town council meeting.
