Voters Prevail

Once again the voters prevailed.  Last night the Lebanon City Council voted unanimously to delay advertising their new zoning change that would effectively nullify Amendment #1 until July 7, 2010.  I am satisfied with this outcome.

Lyme Properties will work diligently to complete and file the site plan application that protects the River Park Plan.  I expect the City Council to honor their pledge and I trust the planning staff will work cooperatively with Lyme to achieve the outcome we all want.

It will be challenging to prepare a thorough and professional application in such a short time frame, but I am confident Lyme has the staff, talent and skill to meet the challenge.

As always we will keep our neighbors and Friends of River Park informed along the way.  Please encourage your friends and other supporter's to join Friends of River Park in order to facilitate our communication and educational efforts.  Click on the "Join Friends of River Park" button and complete the request for information.

Lyme received tremendous feedback about River Park News and we expect to release the second issue sometime in May.  Stay tuned.

As always, thanks for your support.  It does make a difference.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact us directly at
