Zoning divides the City into districts for the purpose of regulating land use and development. Each district has specific requirements regarding uses allowed, building heights, minimum setbacks from property lines, lot coverage and minimum lot area.


Title 14 Planning and Zoning, chapters 2 through 14, is known as the “Zoning Ordinance of the City of Lebanon, Tennessee”. The “Official Zoning Atlas of Lebanon, Tennessee” (atlas) and “Major Thoroughfare Plan” (plan) are also considered part of Title 14. (Ordinance 83-501)

As part of the City of Lebanon Municipal Code, Title 14 deals with the zoning regulations and districts in accordance with a comprehensive plan for the purpose of promoting the public health, safety, morals, convenience, order, prosperity, and general welfare of the community. They have been designed to lessen congestion in the streets, to secure safety from fire, panic, and other dangers, to provide adequate light and air, to prevent the overcrowding of land, to avoid undue concentration of population, and to facilitate the adequate provision of transportation, water, sewerage , schools, parks, and other public requirements. They have been made with reasonable consideration, among other things, as to the character of each district and its suitability for particular uses, and with a view of conserving the value of buildings and property and encouraging the most appropriate use of land throughout the city.
