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, in partnership with Manheim Township, has hired C.S.Davdison, Inc. to prepare a study to assess the feasibility of area-wide disconnection of public stormwater facilities from public sanitary sewer facilities in and around the area known as Grandview Heights. The study area includes portions of Manheim Township, Lancaster City, and Amtrak right-of way, highlighted in pink, yellow, and green, respectively, in Figure 1 below.
UPDATE: Pine Street (Harrisburg to New) is now tentatively scheduled for demolition August 16 or 17, with paving following afterwards.
The section from Orange to Chestnut will still be on schedule August 7 as described below.
