City to begin work on new comprehensive plan

The beginning of work on a new comprehensive plan for the City of Lebanon, was announced Thursday. In his State of the City address, Mayor Jared Carr said Lebanon Project 2040 will map out the future for the next 20 years and beyond. “Simply put, a comprehensive plan provides Lebanon leadership with a map to implement the community’s vision for the future,” according to an announcement from the city. “The tool helps municipalities ensure land is developed properly and creates proper conditions for residential, commercial, and industrial growth.” Carr said this is just the beginning for the plan. “We are looking forward to seeing what the community brings to the table,” he said. Creating a plan will be a challenge, Carr said. For more on this story, see Saturday's LCR.
