LCA Leads City Economic Development Strategic Plan

In January, the LCA and the City of Lancaster invited select multi-disciplinary, urban-planning teams to submit proposals to develop an Economic Development Strategic Plan for the City.

An award-winning team lead by Mahan Rykiel Associates Inc. of Baltimore, and including RGS Associates of Lancaster and Arnett Muldrow & Associates of Greenville, SC was selected to engage City residents, business owners and community leaders over the next year in a dialogue to set the stage for the next 10 to 15 years for Lancaster.

The initiative will provide an implementable framework for guiding economic growth and development for the City by identifying key opportunities to strengthen, expand and diversify the City‘s economic base surrounding key commercial areas. This will include the development of a new “Vision” for the City of Lancaster that includes a focus on not only the Downtown but commercial corridors and gateways throughout the City.

The LCA is managing the process through a Steering Committee composed of the LCA’s Economic Development & Planning Executive Leadership Team of civic and business leaders.

It is critical that this initiative be community based and public participation is crucial to the success and implementation of the strategy. As part of this process, in June, a larger Working Group was assembled that includes a wide spectrum of City users, business owners, property owners and residents. This diverse group will lead this important effort and assist in engaging the public.

Throughout the year, there will also be opportunities for public input and participation through a series of one-on one interviews, group workshops tapping our growing entrepreneurial and artist communities, merchants, community organizations, educators and others, as well as a series of public presentations throughout the process.

Please follow the LCA on Facebook and visit www.LancasterCityAlliance.org for regular updates and opportunities for public input.

Funding of this initiative has been provided by the generous support of the Lancaster Community, including the City of Lancaster, Steinman Foundation, Lancaster County Community Foundation, and private-sector contributions from Lancaster businesses, residents and property owners.
