The mountain bike trail proposed for a former landfill has taken another step closer to construction. In partnership with the Hoosier Mountain Bike Association and the National Interscholastic Cycling Association, Lebanon moves forward with the park to be built on a 110-acre site north on U.S. 52 owned by the city. It was a landfill until 1984, then was capped. It has been sitting basically idle since then. City Engineer Kevin Krulik told the council at the Monday evening meeting there were several meetings and community input sessions to gauge the popularity of this idea. More than 80 residents attended the community planning session. His Facebook posts about the park have reached 30,000 views. More details in the Lebanon Reporter.
