The 3-year process to develop the new county comprehensive plan, places2040 ended in 2018 with the adoption of the plan by the Lancaster County Commissioners. During development of this plan over 8,000 voices spoke up and offered their input – far more than any similar process that LCPC has coordinated during its 60-year existence. Participants included county residents, local governments, targeted stakeholders, technical advisors, LCPC members and staff, and our 20 plus Partners for Place – those organizations with a countywide or citywide focus. Over the course of 3 years, LCPC staff made places2040 presentations to over 100 groups in at least 50 different locations throughoutthe county. LCPC also sponsored two events featuring nationally recognized speakers. Using this community input and related analysis, LCPC staff developed the plan as a roadmap to the future of Lancaster County, and it’s a future that county residents defined for themselves. It provides a framework for all of us – the public, private, and nonprofit sectors – to make better decisions about our future, and to make them from a countywide perspective.
