Partners for Place
Partners for Place are more than 20 regional, countywide, and city organizations and agencies that played a leadership role in guiding places2040. The Lancaster County Planning Commission involved them in the process because their work is closely related to the topics in the plan, and because they had the resources to contribute directly to this effort. Over the course of three years, they met regularly to reflect on the plan’s direction and to build awareness, educate, and engage the public. After the expected adoption of the plan, they will help to implement its 5 big ideas, 26 policies, and 7 catalytic tools & strategies.
Below are some video vignettes focusing on a few of our partners. In these videos, the participants explain what places2040 means to them and their organization. These vignettes were created during the planning process for places2040. [Note: The last partner listed – Lancaster Clean Water Partners – does not have a video, because they joined us after the videos were created.]
LANCASTER CLEAN WATER PARTNERS
"Lancaster wants to be the success story for clean and clear water. That requires a collaborative plan like places2040, which represents and encourages the collective effort among all partners working to improve the quality of streams across the county."- Allyson Ladley Gibson
