Today's Lead Story

Your Support of the City Makes our Work Possible

Dear Neighbor:

Your enthusiasm for the City of Lancaster is part of the reason why the City succeeds. On behalf of all of us at Lancaster City Alliance, we love how you love Lancaster!

Your support for the City inspires our work. In 2019, we celebrated 43 business milestone anniversaries and shared 18 different traffic alerts. Our blue shirt clean team picked up 79,000 pounds of leaves and performed 2,000 business checks. We placed 20 new sidewalk trash receptacles on the City’s south side, and our red shirt ambassadors removed 396 graffiti tags.

Today we hope you will support our year-end campaign. Our goal is to raise $10,000 so that you can help us reach our objective of a flourishing City where everyone can share in its success. Your support will connect families to their surroundings in a positive way. With donor support, we are able to provide homes on S. Prince, S. Queen, Columbia Avenue, and Beaver, Manor Streets with a fresh coat of paint, front porch repairs, and new windows and doors. With our partners, we launched Indie Retail Week and the Cultivar Hispanic business owner’s event and welcomed # new businesses and #employees to the City. However, there is still much work to be done.

With your support, we can continue important collaborative work like addressing affordable housing, transportation, and poverty in the City. That is why our goal for this campaign is to raise $10,000 by December 31. If we raise that amount, we could make improvements to two more homes in the City’s south side.

You can make a donation of $50 or $100, or whatever you can afford, to help us achieve a flouring City where everyone can share in its success. As a non-profit focused on the City’s success, we cannot do it without your support. You can have a lasting impact on all those who call Lancaster City home.

With gratitude,

Marshall, David, Lori, Jeremy, Colleen, Ricardo, Lisa, and Anne

 

P.S. Our end-of-year campaign starts today. A donation to the Lancaster City Alliance toward our $10,000 goal by December 31 will support improvements to two more City homes. You can make a gift of $50, $100, or whatever you can afford, click here to make your donation today.

 

Building On Strength Year 3 Summit

June 2018 marked the end of three years of implementation on Building On Strength, the City of Lancaster, Pennsylvania’s 15-Year Economic Development Strategic Plan. At this milestone, Lancaster City Alliance invited the Plan’s nationally recognized consultants from Mahan Rykiel Associates, Inc., Arnett Muldrow & Associates, Ltd., and RGS Associates, Inc. to return for a special panel discussion with the Plan’s steering committee, the Lancaster City Alliance’s Economic Development & Planning Executive Leadership Team, as well as the organization’s Chairpersons Council and Advocacy Executive Leadership Teams. The consultants’ feedback highlighted the community’s achievements and where the community should focus its attention moving into Year 4.
