The Lebanon County Metropolitan Planning Organization, in collaboration with the Lebanon County Planning Department, is currently working on an updated Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), which will shape transportation locally over the next four years.

This update, which began with groundwork in 2023, is currently in a phase of gathering public feedback and conducting technical analyses and should be adopted later this year.

The forthcoming plan seeks to address a comprehensive set of goals including enhancing safety and security, improving personal and freight mobility, ensuring equity, and promoting sustainable land use and economic growth. The objectives also emphasize the importance of managing growth, investing in assets, and ensuring resilience against unforeseen challenges.

As part of the public engagement process, the first of two in-person public meetings has been scheduled for Feb. 27 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Lebanon Community Library, 125 N. 7th St., Lebanon, as announced by Alma Fargason, lead planner with WSP, who is working with the Lebanon County Metropolitan Planning Organization to gather input from county residents.

This meeting aims to generate feedback from Lebanon County residents on the transportation priorities and projects that will influence the county’s development over the next two decades.

Residents are encouraged to participate in the planning process through various platforms. The project’s website, also available in Spanish, provides extensive information, including access to the 2020 LRTP and links to an online survey and an interactive mapping tool. These resources offer residents the opportunity to voice their opinions on the current state and future prospects of transportation in Lebanon County.

The survey covers a range of topics from the quality of transportation services and roadway safety to changes in commuting patterns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The upcoming public meeting is designed as an interactive session where attendees can engage directly with the planning team through exercises and discussions aimed at identifying key transportation issues and investment priorities.

Members of the public are also welcome to email the team at, and paper copies of the survey and mapping tool are also available upon request.
