Council hears presentation on downtown revitalization

Project architects from DLZ presented to the Lebanon City Council Monday five recommendations to revitalize Lebanon’s downtown area.

The presentation was the culmination of a $40,000 downtown planning grant the city received last spring from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs. The engineering firm, DLZ, held public meetings, taking comments and suggestions from city residents. After taking that into consideration with lots of study and planning, the firm presented five major recommendation to the city council — becoming a part of the Main Street Program and addressing the city’s parking, streetscapes, trails and signage. The study centered around the target area, defined as a 24-block area bordered by West Street to the west, East Street to the east, Chicago Street to the north, and Superior Street to the south.
