The City of Lebanon secured over $10 million in grants in 2021 that will help revitalize our community. The grant-supported projects include:
Glosser Road Pump Station
Parkside Open Space and Trail Improvements
This project replaces the existing sanitary sewer pump station located at Glosser Rd. that has reached the end of it’s useful life. This pump station pumps wastewater flow from its location at Glosser Rd. all the way to the City’s wastewater treatment plant located on Mason Morrow Millgrove Rd. During heavy rain events, the existing pump station experiences surcharges and does not function properly.
The City received a State Clean Ohio Fund to support the purchase of 57 acres of public greenspace and the construction of a new multi-purpose trail through the park.
The City received a Federal grant to help support the construction of a new bike trail on the east side of Lebanon through the existing Bowman Nature Preserve. This is a major step in constructing a trail system that provides a complete loop around Lebanon and connects all neighborhoods to a trail system.
N Mechanic Street Reconstruction
The City received a State grant to support the complete reconstruction of N Mechanic St., which will include utility upgrades.
Lebanon Bike Park Trail Improvements
New mountain bike trails are coming to the Premier Health Lebanon Bike Park this spring, thanks to a State Clean Ohio Fund grant.
Harmon Park Playground Replacement
A State NatureWorks grant and the Harmon Civic Trust are supporting the replacement of the playground equipment at Harmon Park to include a new turf play surface.
City Tree Program
The City is proud to be an Arbor Day Foundation Tree City, and this grant will help plant new trees in public places throughout town
We will continue to update the community on the progress of these projects throughout the year. Updates will be posted on the City’s website, Facebook and Instagram.
