On Thursday, March 21, 2019, Lebanon Mayor, Suzanne M. Prentiss participated in a press conference held by Governor Sununu at the State House in Concord regarding the $570,000 the Governor has placed in his proposed State budget for the demolition of the buildings in the Westboro Yard.
Lebanon City Council has led the effort to obtain funding from Governor Sununu in the State budget to demolish the buildings. The buildings are owned by the NH Department of Transportation and are in very poor condition. This will help to pave the way for the future of W. Lebanon.
Westboro Rail Yard is part of the West Lebanon Central Business District and described in the Lebanon Master Plan as the district’s “single greatest obstacle and its greatest opportunity.” Westboro Rail Yard was also recently discussed during the City Council Meeting held on March 3/6/19.
