Where did the money come from for this?

The Community Planning & Economic Development Department, along with a Comprehensive Plan Team across all major City departments and the mayor’s office, will lead this effort. Initial stakeholder engagement with community organizations affirmed a need for a plan that is equitable in both process and outcomes. In response, the City has forged partnerships with the High Foundation, the Lancaster City Alliance (LCA), the Lancaster Equity Community Development Corporation (LECDC), and many other community-based organizations to carry out the planning.

Partners for Places has awarded the City of Lancaster with a $75,000 grant to fund the 2022 Comprehensive Plan. The High Foundation has generously provided $75,000 in matching funding, giving the city a total of $150,000 for the community engagement process for the Comprehensive Plan.
