Parklet Day will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 8:00 AM until 2:00 PM.

Historic Lebanon, City of Lebanon and community members, will be using artistic inspirations to create parklets to educate each other, to contribute our ideas, and to express our needs for the City. These parklets will be a part of the overall Guiding Principles that the City is creating for the Comprehensive Plan and the betterment of the community.  In addition to the Parklets, there will be a block party with food trucks, music, and vendors.For more information, please see our Parklet Day page at Parktet Day

The City of Lebanon has selected the services of the consultant team of Stantec Consulting Services, Inc., to create a Comprehensive Plan. This will be a year long process that involves many members and citizens of the community. Citizen input will be gathered over the next few months through charrettes, workshops, a survey, and other methods. Please contact the City of Lebanon Planning Department if you want to participate.

This is an example of the possible ways that the City will be implementing to engage the public.

Public Engagement Tool Spectrum

This Comprehensive Plan will replace the 1984 Comprehensive Plan and the 2006 Land Use Plan for the City of Lebanon, Tennessee, and address issues regarding infill, redevelopment, preservation of the downtown, neighborhood stabilization and succession, and development at existing activity nodes that are connected to the major transportation corridors. In addition, the project will contemplate altering the city’s land use vision to respond to changing demographic trends, changing housing market demands, increasing energy costs, regional economic changes, education, entertainment, and industrial and workforce trends.

The Ordinance for the Comprehensive Plan and Unified Development can be found here.
