Lexington SC Residents May Get More Smoke Free Restaurants

Lexington SC Residents May Get More Smoke Free Restaurants-Lexington SC Real Estate Guide

The town of Lexington has already passed and implemented an ordinance to ban smoking in businesses located within the town limits that began in late 2008.  In an article written in “The Lexington Chronicle” dated February 5, 2008 the Lexington town leaders have asked the Lexington County Council to pass a smoking ban for county restaurants and bars.  The county could pass the newly proposed ban as early as March, but obviously all of this is subject to votes, hearings, ect.  Mayor Randy Halfacre is quoted “We want people to know that not only will they get good food and merchandise in Lexington shops and restaurants, they will be breathing clean, fresh air.”  This should be a positive move for Lexington SC Residents and Lexington SC Real Estate Values.

Lexington SC Home Sales Statistics

The market here in general is still up and down.  Last week almost all areas had positive numbers, but this week there is a mix again.  It will take a little longer to establish a longer term trend for the areas, but I still think in general things are moving in the right direction.  For instance the Lexington numbers are down from last week, but still very good overall!  Lake Murray still seems to be lagging a little, but mostly because of the higher property values.  Chapin has remained fairly consistent as well.  Northeast Columbia still remains an active area with Fort Jackson and other industrial areas fueling some of the activity.
