Envision Lebanon receives a STaR award

By January 16, 2023Awards

Earlier this month, the national American Planning Association (APA) awarded the Envision Lebanon process with a 2022 Small Town and Rural (STaR) Award!

Envision Lebanon in Lebanon, OH, took home the Vernon Deines Honor Award for a Small Town or Rural Plan – Small Jurisdiction.

Adopted in late 2021, Envision Lebanon was an inclusive comprehensive planning process that asked participants, in a challenging time of civil unrest and amid health concerns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, to think beyond the current state and envision the future of Lebanon.

Congratulations to the city of Lebanon, the elected officials, and the planning team!
