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.
