An interesting story out of Lebanon as the city is headed to Grafton Superior Court next month to fight a petition for an injunction to halt the installation of two hazard beacons utilized by the Lebanon Airport.
The city began installing the beacons last month – one by the Lebanon Police Station and a second in a remote location off Poverty Lane – but work ceased when residents in the area took action and filed a petition for an injunction in superior court.
The beacons were approved by the city in 2011 as a means of enhancing safety and meeting FAA guidelines.
According to the city’s website, Lebanon obtained all necessary building permits for the project, and is in no violation of any zoning ordinances or city codes. The two beacons would be 120-feet tall, and are the preferred alternative of raising the height of 38 existing hazard lights.
