Neighbors United, a Northeast Lancaster community group in existence for almost 65 years, is partnering with the LCA to develop a strategy to strengthen the quality of life in their neighborhood.
A 10-block area that borders the existing the Bike Ambassador coverage area has been identified and together this partnership is working on a plan that includes expanding the LCA Bike Ambassador program, implementing greening initiatives, installation of trash receptacles and lighting improvements.
Neighbors United is forming a committee to work in collaboration with the LCA to begin talking to stakeholders in the Northeast about the vision for the area and to raise the funds needed to support the goals of the Neighborhood Strategy. The LCA is providing technical assistance and will contract the Bike Ambassador services.
The Lancaster City Alliance’s focus on empowering neighborhoods is a key aspect of the organization’s strategic plan and expanding Clean and Safe services to neighborhoods beyond the Northwest and Downtown areas is an impactful step as LCA continues itsgoal of a sustainable and vibrant Lancaster City.
