In Lebanon, New Hampshire, city officials are seeking input from area residents on which direction they should take in regards to the future of the downtown. The specific downtown areas in question are Colburn Park, the pedestrian mall, and the old rail tunnel underneath the mall.
The city is looking to move forward with the Downtown Visioning Study and Tunnel Project, using the public’s input to influence how they re-engage the project consultants to develop what’s being called a Preferred Alternative.
The finished proposal, based on survey results, will be presented to the public later this spring after the survey closes this Friday. This is the second survey of the sort, with the city having held multiple public hearings last year and this year and over a thousand residents chiming in.
The city has posted current survey results on their website, which shows how many people have voted for each “alternative” for each part of the downtown being looked at, with each one having Alternatives A, B, and C.
If you live in Lebanon and would like to offer some words of your own on how the downtown can be altered, you can visit www.Planning.LebNH.net to get started.
