The City of Lancaster is in the process of updating their comprehensive plan, which was last prepared in 1993. The comprehensive plan will serve as a foundation for decision-making as it relates to future development, with a focus on community outreach to help understand what is most important to the local community. We look forward to the community's participation in the planning process.
