206768592_866368247568286_6047699350857320415_nHere is a brief recap of major action taken at the Aug. 9 regular Lebanon City Council meeting:
✅ Council approved Bill 6125 authorizing an overlay of Commercial Street from Jefferson Avenue to Jackson Street.
What does this mean for the community?
In the very near future Commercial Street will have a new surface for downtown visitors to drive along. The work will also include colored thermo-plastic crosswalks. The overlay project will make downtown safer and more attractive as the community works to revitalize Downtown Lebanon.
✅ Council approved Bill 6126 authorizing traffic studies at the existing intersections of Harwood Avenue and Clark Avenue, Cowan Drive and Millcreek Road, Jefferson Avenue and Freemont Road, Washington Avenue and Commercial Street, Second Street and Washington Avenue, Harwood Avenue and Washington Avenue and along with Elm Street corridor between Springfield Road and Ivey Lane. 
What does this mean for the community?
Community members have indicated that traffic flow is a top-priority concern for our residents. Council is using this study to determine where traffic signals could better improve traffic flow and alleviate congestion in the City of Lebanon.
✅ Council approved Bill No. 6127 authorizing the installation of a new water main to serve the new Nelson Court Subdivision.
What does this mean to the community?
It seems like just the installation of a water line, but actually, it’s a big deal. Lebanon is facing a housing shortage and one of the goals of council is to make Lebanon more attractive for builders. This project is going to make it possible for new housing to be constructed in the Nelson Court area and help increase the housing stock within the city. 
✅ Council approved Bill No. 6130 entering in a consultant agreement with Cynthia Honssinger-Coffman?
What is this?


This is approving the use of economic development funds to help pay the salary of the Downtown Business District Board’s new Downtown Executive Director Cynthia Honssinger-Coffman. Cynthia Honssinger-Coffman will succeed Ashton Light. A Lebanon native and 1979 Lebanon High School graduate, Honssinger-Coffman, currently manages the Coffman Partnership, a consulting firm for government affairs, public policy, legal and regulatory compliance, and state attorney general relations. She served as Attorney General for the State of Colorado from 2015 to 2019. She returns to Lebanon with extensive legal and executive experience along with experience in non-profit and corporate fundraising.
