Ohio Magazine Names Lebanon A 2012 Best Hometown!
Does "IT'S ABOUT TIME!!!" or "WOO HOO" fit better??? We felt a little slighted when Money Magazine named the neighboring towns of Mason #24 and Springboro #42 in it's recent 100 Best Small Towns To Live List! Hey, where's Lebanon on that list?? But some other experts have corrected that oversight! Every year Ohio magazine names a Best Hometown for each of the five regions of Ohio. For 2012, Lebanon has been named one of those five Best Hometowns! In the November 2011 issue the five towns will be formally introduced, but the good news is out!
Selection criteria included: community spirit, education, entertainment, health and safety, business environment, culture and heritage. Towns needed to apply, and judges conducted site visits.
Now examining that checklist, it's EASY to see why Lebanon won!
This is a community that gets behind it's school teams! You'll see Lebanon Warriors signs in the yards, plenty of Lebanon T-shirts being sold too! Education? Consistently rated Excellent or better by the state! Entertainment? Symphony, Opry Hall, theater, and about a half dozen festivals a year! Health & Safety? Top notch there too, and we've got a hospital right at the SR48/I-71 interchange. Business environment? DEFINITELY pro business here! Culture and heritage? Check out the Warren County History Center and the Glendower Mansion museum! The work of Historic Downtown Lebanon Inc. to promote the town is fantastic!
We've got antique shops, a Red Hot Blues Festival, Christmas parades with over a hundred horse drawn carriages, Applefest, the Lebanon Mason Monroe Railroad, parks and golf courses, the country's LARGEST YMCA, home of the Warren County Fair.....AND if you get that big city itch, we're basically 30 minutes drive in one direction to downtown Cincinnati and 30 minutes the other direction to Dayton!
And did we mention we've got some GREAT values in housing?
Have we made enough of a case for you to consider Lebanon as YOUR hometown?
If so, just give us a call and we'll help you find the right Lebanon home for you!
