The Forward Together Lebanon Taskforce Leadership Team has always thought about the county’s economic recovery in four phases:

  • Respond
  • Recover
  • Reimagine
  • Rebuild

Given the work that has occurred since March, we believe that both the Lebanon County Commissioners and Forward Together Lebanon in working with all stakeholders have successfully Responded and established a vital process through the CARES Funding, implementing Mask Up Lebanon, and connected the community to critical resources through the Recovery  phase.

Now, we are preparing with your support to also reimagine Lebanon County’s future.  In order to truly understand Lebanon County’s economic and workforce development standing, we have partnered with leading economic and workforce development consultants at  Econsult Solutions, Inc. and  Fourth Economy to engage in an economic recovery planning and strategy process to help the County, its businesses, tourism partners, and nonprofit community to recover from the current crisis and to position itself for success in the future.

An economic analysis reviewing data pre-COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 has been completed.  We will now work together to design strategies to improve our economic position as a county today and well into the future.
