Lebanon Vision 2040
BDS Planning & Urban Design facilitated a community-wide visioning process for the City of Lebanon – Lebanon 2040. Lebanon 2040 was a community engagement process to envision Lebanon’s future. The resulting vision will guide the community in a shared direction and define community core values through several focus areas to shape the city’s growth over the next 25 years. Lebanon 2040 acknowledged current realities and built a bridge to the future. These values will provide a foundation for strategic decisions about City investments and programs in the years ahead. The visioning process included stakeholder interviews, targeted outreach to those who may not otherwise engage, and participation in community events. The visioning process was overseen by a mayor-appointed steering committee and was reviewed with a “community sounding board” before being presented to the City Council for adoption.
