---- — LEBANON — A few local residents and property owners had a lot of comments and concerns about the future of the city of Lebanon at Wednesday’s downtown planning public input meeting. The meeting, held at the Lebanon Municipal Building, was a result of the $40,000 downtown planning grant the city received from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs last spring. Engineering firm DLZ was hired with the grant dollars to complete a study of the downtown area as defined by the city — between East and West streets and Chicago and Superior streets. DLZ representatives Eric Ragg, principal architect, and Scott Carnegie, project manager, held the first public input meeting to hear from residents and property owners about what they would like to see change about the downtown area.
