Open Space Plan for News Flash

In November 2021, the Conservation Commission adopted the Lebanon Open Space Plan, which helps articulate the City's long-term vision for land conservation, provides information on desirable open space characteristics and sets benchmarks to measure future progress.

The Plan's adoption, and its subsequent endorsement by the Planning Board in May 2022 and the City Council in June 2022, completes a long-standing goal of the Planning & Development Department and a key recommendation of the City's 2012 Master Plan. The Master Plan includes multiple references to the importance of open space planning for ensuring responsible and respectful development and for identifying and protecting the existing resources and biodiversity that Lebanon enjoys.

The adopted Open Space Plan is now part of a set of studies and reports, along with the Natural Resources Inventory and the Wildlife Corridors Study, that have been prepared in conjunction with the Conservation Commission to achieve the community's goals with respect to natural resources as set forth in the Master Plan.
