Lexington Human Rights Commission moving its office

Lexington: After 30 years in the building that houses the Fayette County Clerk’s Office at 162 East Main Street, the Lexington Human Rights Commission offices are moving. The new location is at 342 Waller Avenue. The office will be closed next week to relocate. The commission will open at its new offices on Dec. 1. In the meantime, those needing to make complaints may do so online at

Raymond Sexton, executive director of the commission, said in a news release that the new location had free parking and that parking at the renovated Helix Garage had become a hindrance because the commission could not validate ­visitors’ parking.

“We need to make sure we have as few barriers as possible,” Sexton said in the release.

The new commission offices have increased security, are on the first floor, are on a bus line, and have space for programming and training.
