• Future Use of District-Owned Land


    Lebanon Community School Corporation owns multiple pieces of land throughout our attendance boundaries. The property in question is approximately 70 acres of land, located at the northwest intersection of John Bart and Fordice Roads. The district desires to sell this land, a decision made as part of long-range planning and only after assessing current ownership and potential needs. 


    Following the approval of contract, the purchaser is responsible for replatting the property. This includes preparation of subdivision plans, as well as application to governmental authorities for appropriate zoning. The completion of the property sale is contingent upon approval of these plans by the City of Lebanon.

    The Lebanon City Council is the legislative branch of the city government. Individuals interested in future updates and opportunities to provide comment are encouraged to follow the City Council and City Planning Departments for more information.
