DescriptionThe tagline on the Lexington Commons homepage defines the site as “The Voice of Lexington” which is quite appropriate considering it is written entirely by volunteer citizens of the city and its surrounding suburbs. Because of this all of the stories featured have a very personal feel. Much of the site’s content deals with the local nonprofit sector—“Celebrating Nonprofit Organizations and Volunteers!” a permanent banner headline on the homepage blares—but local government and business also get considerable attention.
