City of Lewisburg encourages public to attend Comprehensive Plan meeting

What are the biggest issues facing the City of Lewisburg? Lewisburg is hosting a community meeting to gather citizen input on creating the city’s comprehensive plan.

All residents, business owners, and other interested persons are invited and encouraged to attend the meeting, which is being held on Wednesday, Jan. 8 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Greenbrier County Convention and Visitors Bureau, 200 W. Washington Street.

The meeting will be in an Open House format to accommodate citizens’ schedules. Interested persons can stop by anytime during the posted hours to offer ideas, voice concerns, and help formulate a vision for the future of Lewisburg.

Why is the city engaged in a planning process? When communities do not plan, they fail to take advantage of their opportunities. The City of Lewisburg has many strengths and advantages, but the city has challenges as well. The plan will recommend specific projects to address the issues and concerns that are voiced throughout the planning process.

The plan is being facilitated by the Lewisburg Planning Commission. For more information, please contact John Manchester, mayor of the City of Lewisburg at 304-645-2080.
