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.
