Chapin Town Hall

Mayor's Message


It’s hard to believe that Summer is over and we have moved into the Fall. Before long we will see the leaves change and the weather turn. It is inevitable with the passing of time that our community will change. I was disappointed to learn that the Chapin Times has decided to close its door. The Chapin Times was started in 1976 to be a voice, a means of communication and a source of news for all residents in the growing Chapin area. For the past 40 years that is exactly what the Chapin Times has done. We would like to thank Bud and Dee Timmons for their dedication to the community and involvement over the years. The Chapin Times had become a Chapin institution and it will be sorely missed among longtime residents. Please look for future Town notices to be listed in the Lexington Chronicle. If you have any questions regarding notice requirements please contact the staff at Town Hall for assistance.
On Thursday, the community was delivered more upsetting news as we learned of Chapin Hall of Fame award recipient and community member, Gerald Steele’s passing. Gerald and I attended the same church and had gotten to know each other through the years in a professional sense. As NAI Avant’s longest-serving broker, Gerald was instrumental in developing the Chapin community and the entire community owes him a debt of gratitude for his hard work on our behalf. We want to extend our deepest condolences to his family and to all those who knew him.
These are both huge loses to our community but their impacts will live on for future generations. The impressions they left and the difference they made in the lives of our citizens will not be forgotten. As we look toward future events we will remember their contributions and build on the legacy they left behind.
Next Tuesday we will have our Regular Town Council Meeting. Newly elected Town Councilman Leland Teal will join us for his first meeting of his term. We are very excited to have him join our team and we know he will bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the organization.
As we approach the holiday season, I would like to take an opportunity to remind all our citizens to Shop Local as much as possible. The investment in our local business causes a ripple effect throughout our entire community. There are several opportunities located in our upcoming events section including the last Farmer’s Market of the season on October 6 and the Holiday Open Market held November 1-4. We will continue to promote other events like the ones provided below throughout the year. We want to remind everyone that an investment in our local business economy is a benefit to the community as a whole. Supporting these businesses often means supporting your neighbor, the PTA president, or a church member. These businesses contribute to our vitality as well as the local character and charm of Chapin.
Thank you for your ongoing interest in the Town and for your continued support. I want to wish you all a safe and enjoyable week.

Best regards,

Mayor David Knight

Town Highlights


Ribbon Cuttings

This week our community welcomed a new business to the area and celebrated the expansion of another long time business.

Chapin Veterinary Hospital located on 500 Columbia Ave. officially opened their doors on September 25. Dr. Jamie L. Parnell and her talented team are looking forward to reuniting with their familiar faces and welcoming new patients. Councilman Mike Clonts and Public Affairs Director Nicholle Burroughs were on hand for their ribbon cutting. Their facility is huge and well positioned to treat all kinds of pets. The facility features artwork from local artist Sonya Diimmler.

For over thirteen years, Chapin Pediatrics has served our Chapin community. Hundreds of families have entrusted their children's care to Dr. Bonnett and his team. It was an honor for Mayor Knight to join Rep. Chip Huggins and Rep. Rick Martin in congratulating Chapin Pediatrics on opening their brand new facility located on 723 Chapin Road. The ribbon cutting event was filled with community members, friends and family gathering in celebration. The practice spared no expense to ensure that Chapin Pediatrics' new home was reflective of the business and mission that they were build on. The building featured a large collection from Marc James Villanueva.
