A few JustLexington Blog updates

  1. The gas prices monitor for Lexington SC 29072 on the Home page has been removed. It just wasn't accurate. I've seen two gas stations in Lexington priced at $2.89/gal for regular unleaded all week, but the monitor has continued to show the cheapest gas being $2.90/gal. Besides, its a little depressing to keep being reminded of how expensive gas has gotten.
  2. New recent property sales data has been added to the Property Sales page.
  3. The directory of neighborhoods in Lexington SC 29072 has 208 listed.
  4. Almost 50% of the respondents to the "Do you live in zip code 29072?" poll do not live there. Haven't voted? Vote now.
  5. The Ashley Hills page has the most information thus far of all the neighborhood pages. This is mainly the case b/c it is first on the list and I know people are looking at it to see what kind of information these neighborhood pages are going to include. For now, it includes a neighborhood sign picture, a description of the location, names of roads in the neighborhood, number of home sites, school zoning, a map of the location, and recent property sales.
  6. A simple tool was added to the Neighborhoods page allowing anyone to discuss and comment on the neighborhoods of Lexington SC 29072. No login, email, or signup is required either.

New Providence Elementary

Lexington South Carolina has been known for its excellent schools. With the residential growth in Lexington, the need for additional schools has increased. In response to this need, Lexington District One is getting a new elementary school for 2008. The school has been named New Providence Elementary and is currently under construction on Old Cherokee Road. According to a Lexington District One press release earlier this year, "The district has photographs and information about a school known as Providence School that existed in the early 1900s. Ruins of the old steps of Providence School can still be seen on the grounds of Providence Lutheran Church located on Old Chapin Road."



The new attendance lines for the New Providence Elementary and the other elementary schools in the district are currently being decided. The timeline for determining these new lines has been laid out by the school district:

  • A public presentation of the proposed attendance lines for New Providence Elementary has been scheduled for November 13th at the regularly scheduled Lexington One Board of Trustees meeting beginning at 7:30 p.m. Maps of the proposed attendance lines will be made available to the public at this time.
  • During the last week of November, parents and community members will have the opportunity to attend several more public meetings. Written comments from the public will be accepted during these meetings.
  • A final decision concerning the New Providence attendance lines will be made by the Lexington One School Board on December 11th. "


So not long at all after Pleasant Hill Elementary and Pleasant Hill Middle schools were built to accommodate the children of Lexington School District One, another new elementary school is on the horizon. New Providence Elementary should be a welcomed addition.

The What, Where, When, Who, & Why

Let's start by trying to define JustLexington.com...

What: JustLexington.com - go check out the site



Where: Lexington, SC 29072

When: The idea to create this site came to my mind sometime in 2005. I actually started gathering the information in December of 2006. In July of 2007, the site was launched.

Who: I am Salim Khalil. I live and work in Lexington, SC 29072.

Why: There currently is no easy place to get information on all the neighborhoods within zip code 29072. That is the first goal of JustLexington.com.


So far I have a list of 140 neighborhoods within zip code 29072. Of those, I have pictures of 36 neighborhood signs. And at this point I have one neighborhood page which is complete: Sterling Lake. I imagine there are 50 or so more neighborhoods which I have not accounted for yet. I hope to get each neighborhood page with as much information or more as the Sterling Lake page.
