A 46-acre multi-family development is planned for the west side of Lebanon, and a meet-and-greet with developers is scheduled for May 16 - a little more than a week before a public hearing for the development is presented to the Lebanon Planning Commission.
To be located north of Highway 70 off Carver Lane, Cedar Farm Village will feature 732 rental homes with a "village community feel," according to a news release issued on behalf of the project's partners, Jack D. Lowery and Rick Hayes.
The new village community buildings will be strategically placed to preserve the site's natural environment and maintaining natural green buffers by minimizing tree removal and land disturbance. The construction team, the news release read, will "pay special attention in preserving the site's natural open space by including 10-foot walking and bicycle trails within its 20+ acres of open space and green belt."
Other amenities to be included are a community swimming pool and sun deck with an adjacent club house enhanced with billiards, shuffleboard, a gaming and media lounge. Also planned is a basketball court, terraced grilling areas, a dog park and children's play area known as the "Tot Lot." A pavilion is planned along the walking trail, and a community car wash area and putting green will also be available to residents of Cedar Farm Village.
"There are many young local professionals who are not able or ready to purchase homes, and they will benefit from this project," Hayes said. "Young people who prefer to stay in the city will feel at home in Cedar Farm Village."
The public and neighborhood residents are invited to the May 16 meet-and-greet. It will be held from 6 until 7:30 p.m. at the Lebanon Country Club Oak Room, and there will be a presentation on the conceptual master plan. Mike Wrye, principal of Lose & Associates and the project land planner and engineer, will host the event along with Lowery and Hayes.
