In April, the Lancaster County Planning Commission (LCPC) hosted four meetings for Lancaster County municipal officials and staff to discuss planning for the future in Lancaster County through places2040. The meetings were held throughout the county - New Holland (North), Quarryville (South), Lancaster City (Central), and Bird-in-Hand (East). In all, 104 leaders from 47 municipalities participated!
In addition to reconnecting with neighboring municipal officials, attendees learned about places2040 and the importance of thinking regionally and working beyond municipal boundaries. Attendees provided their thoughts, concerns, and suggestions on what Lancaster County should look and feel like by 2040.
Local municipalities are vital to creating and implementing places2040! Local officials, boards, and committees are tasked with making the tough land-use decisions that will shape how we live, work, and play in Lancaster County over the next 25 years. We thank them for their continued participation and interest in working together to make Lancaster County a better place!
