Progress Update to City Council, October 25, 2022

Have you heard the news? The City Staff's Comprehensive Plan Team has engaged with 4,700 people to seek feedback about how Lancaster City should develop over the next 20 years. Last night at City Council, Director of Community Planning & Economic Development Chris Delfs and Chief Planner Douglas Smith provided an update to City Council on efforts to date. They described the hard work from staff, volunteers, and partner organizations over the last 16 months.


The process started with establishing good values with the community: equity & inclusion, transparency, collaboration, integrity, and quality. With those values in mind, they made resident outreach the center of their work by focusing on inclusiveness. The City has prioritized language access, in-person interactions, virtual options, and creative activities that engage all ages. Check out the Council Presentation, Engagement Report 1, and other key documents on the Documents page.
