The City of Lebanon is excited to announce the start of Walk, Bike, Ride Leb.
Walk, Bike, Ride Leb will be a plan to create a safe, comfortable, and connected walking and bicycling network in the City of Lebanon, including connections to public transportation.
Over the years, progress has been made towards improving the safety and comfort of walking and bicycling in the City of Lebanon. Some notable achievements include the construction of the Mascoma River Greenway, improved pedestrian safety along the Miracle Mile, and the adoption of a Complete Streets policy.
However, Lebanon has never had a comprehensive, citywide plan for walking and bicycling. Once completed, this plan will identify specific actions that the City can take to develop a safe, comfortable, and connected walking and bicycling network, including connections to public transportation services.
The plan will inform how walking and bicycling improvements factor into future City budgets and Capital Improvements Programs, which grant opportunities are pursued, and how new and existing developments can be connected into the walking and bicycling network. Taking a City-wide approach will help identify the highest-priority improvements that can be achieved with limited resources and funding.
