Lancaster City Alliance is a non-profit that cultivates partnerships with business, local communities, the arts, education, non-profits, and government to ensure Lancaster is a clean, safe, and vibrant City for all.

About Us

We are a non-profit that promotes City growth and stability so that Lancaster City flourishes and everyone shares in its success.

We are here to listen, collaborate, and connect organizations so the City succeeds.

Our Work


Oversee the City’s 15-year economic development plan. The plan contains 33 recommendations for the City’s success and it is our job to ensure each strategy is moving forward.

Provide a foundation for a strong community through neighborhood development, empowering neighbors to plant trees, Adopt-A-Block, and repair facades.

Enhance public safety for residents and businesses while building a strong foundation for commerce by conducting regular meetings with city-wide safety partners, local merchants, and corporate partners.

Manage the Downtown Investment District by providing clean and safe services to property owners invested in the downtown core.

Leverage corporate and private contributions with supplemental funding from grants and successfully manage each dollar that we receive.

Communicate important information to businesses and residents that may affect quality of life such a construction, snow removal, and parking. Follow the Lancaster City Alliance on our social media pages for updates.

Serve several City neighborhoods through our red shirt ambassadors who provide and an extra set of eyes and ears for neighbors and businesses.

We have over 160 volunteers that serve on influential committees and a 14-seat board of directors. Our volunteers are executive-level or upper management and represent corporations, small businesses, and engaged City stakeholders.

The Lancaster City Alliance thanks our 2019/2020 financial supporters


The generous contribution of our corporate and individual partners makes our work possible.
