MT LEBANON’S COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
Over the summer, residents have seen Mt. Lebanon’s hot air balloon everywhere—not floating across the sky (at least not yet!), but on www.mtlebanon.org, in mtl magazine, on Facebook, in the municipal building lobby or on cards passed out at the plan’s traveling exhibit.
The balloon is the symbol for “Elevate Mt. Lebanon,” the goal of the community’s comprehensive plan. The plan — a blueprint for the community’s future — currently is being updated for the first time in more than a decade. Mt. Lebanon is seeking input from as many residents as possible.
Headed by Municipal Planner Keith McGill and composed of representatives from the staff, the commission and various community constituencies, the planning team has reached out to hundreds of residents and businesses at First Fridays, Saturday farmer’s markets and three “photo safaris,” as well as informally at places such as coffee shops and the Uptown T station.
The Municipality will be entering its final phase of its comprehensive planning effort and hosting the Comprehensive Plan Spring Public Workshop. The Workshop is scheduled for Thursday, March 28 between 4pm and 8pm at the Municipality of Mt. Lebanon Municipal Building on Washington Road.
To build greater opportunity for the Comprehensive Plan’s future success, we would enjoy seeing you at this Workshop so that you can give us feedback on the Plan’s recommendations and steps for implementation/action. Your feedback will HELP us put the finishing touches on this community effort and will ELEVATE municipality projects and initiatives to the front and center.
We realize that everyone has numerous commitments and have structured the Workshop to provide the greatest flexibility for you, fellow residents and business members. Stop by anytime between 4pm and 8pm. Stay as long (or short) as you are able. If you are interested in joining us for a formal presentation about the evolution and next steps of the project, there will be a series of brief (10 minute) presentations at 4:30pm, 6pm and 7pm.
