A developer is proposing a $15 million housing and restaurant development on land between Berry and land the city is expected to buy on the county fairgrounds on Broadway.
“The Downtown Master Plan recommends utilizing the front lawn of Berry School for public space such as a park or cultural venue,” Brunka added.
He is scheduled to discuss this with the Lebanon school board at their meeting at 5:30 p.m. today and with city council during a work session to begin at 7 p.m."as part of their overall review of the development proposal."
“At this point, the amphitheater idea is very conceptual, and no decisions have been made by either the school board or the city to move forward with it. We are evaluating the request that has been made as part of the overall development proposal,” Brunka concluded.
