Lebanon looking at revitalizing its historic downtown

3 posts in this topic

The Tennessean is reporting that the City of Lebanon plans on looking at new zoning proposals for its historic downtown by this summer. The city commission hopes to look at ways to revitalize its downtown urban core via looking at ways to improve zoning, traffic patterns, land use policies, and other development aspects effecting how Lebanon.

The article also reported that this past August over 120 individuals attended a two-day workshop on ways to revitalize the downtown square and attract new businesses. That figure sounded pretty impressive to me and reflected well on the enthusiasm for preserving the downtown within the city and Wilson County.

All in all it sounds like Lebanon's city leaders and local citizens are getting behind the idea of capitalizing on Lebanon's good economic growth in a manner to help revitalize its urban core and older neighborhoods and reduce the city's outward sprawl, which is reflects very well on the city's political and civic leadership IMO.

Thats good news. Lebanon currently has an edge over the other rural cities in land development because it and the stops in between are currently the only cities with rail transit to nashville (and will be for a good, long while im speculating). I hope they can think up some god ideas to really develop around that.
