About Us

Advancing the City’s future through corporate & community commitment

Formed on July 1, 2013, the Lancaster City Alliance is the culmination of two strong and vital Lancaster City organizations that consolidated into a single, more powerful force. The James Street Improvement District (JSID) and the Lancaster Alliance joined forces into a single community-service organization that will be more effective than either is alone.

Together, the JSID and the Lancaster Alliance offer 30 years of experience in community and economic development. As the newly formed Lancaster City Alliance (LCA), we will deliver many more.

With a talented staff and a core group of community and business leaders dedicated to the City of Lancaster, the mission of this organization is improving the City’s financial stability, public safety and quality of life.

But importantly, as an alliance, we align with like-minded economic-development and community organizations—jointly identifying key initiatives, linking stakeholders, allocating resources, acting as a catalyst—to produce extraordinary outcomes for the future benefit and utility of the City.

The Lancaster City Alliance serves the people of the City, crossing residential and commercial lines to include anyone who lives, works and plays in Lancaster. In collaboration with neighbors, public, private and non-profit partners and other entities focused on the City of Lancaster, the Lancaster City Alliance ensures a clean, safe and vital environment.

We are passionate about the vitality of the City. We serve as ‘home base’, a central repository of information, resources and connections for getting things done. We also leverage resources every day to make the neighborhoods and Downtown significant contributors to the City’s and County’s dynamics.

Strong Community + Strong Economy
= VIBRANT CITY
