Welcome to the City of Lancaster!
A relatively small city of 7 square miles and 60,000 residents, Lancaster City is located within driving distance of Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Delaware beaches and the Jersey shore. But the City of Lancaster is about so much more than our geographic location. Lancaster City is a place where historic preservation and a cutting-edge arts scene live and thrive side by side; a city of neighborhoods that are safe and welcoming; a city that encourages entrepreneurship and investment; a city that values the cultural, ethnic, and diverse lifestyles of our residents and guests.
The City of Lancaster is pleased to present the third installment of our popular Exhibit Series at the Lancaster Amtrak Train Station, opening on Thursday January 19. Three glass display cases located on the station concourse will feature exhibits by the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum, Rock Ford Plantation, and Lancaster Public Art. The exhibits are curated to be artistic, educational and to visually enrich the environment for the public.
To increase recovery of recyclable materials and provide additional capacity for residents that generate large amounts of recyclables each week, the city will make available at no charge a limited number of 64-gallon carts to be delivered to properties in May 2017.
