Lebanon residents are urged to make their desires for the future of the city known through a city-driven survey as a part of the Lebanon Forward 2040 Bicentennial Comprehensive Plan.
“The survey is to provide everyone in the city a chance to participate in the Lebanon Forward Plan. We started with a random sample survey that went to a list of computer-generated addresses,” Lebanon Planning Director Paul Corder said.
The city’s open survey is now available at lebanontn.org.
The survey asks residents about their opinion for future transportation, recreation and housing plans.
“Anyone can take the survey and provide comments. We will use this information to help us understand what the important issues are in the community. These will directly guide our planning policy recommendations,” Corder said.
The future comprehensive plan will replace the city’s current comprehensive plan created in 1984. The city’s latest land-use plan was created in 2006.
The Lebanon Forward comprehensive task force has been meeting since March 2018. There will be an ongoing planning process that will involve community outreaches, a citizens’ survey, data collection and the analysis of the existing conditions of the city until July 2020.
