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.
We are heartbroken and angry about the violence on our streets and our thoughts are with the Ramos & Marshall families. All of us want it to stop. We’re grateful for all of the information people have shared with the Police regarding recent incidents which significantly helps investigations. These injuries and losses of life will impact our community forever. We see our young people who want to make changes and we want to help them. On Wednesday, June 19, city staff will be meeting with youth organizers to plan a youth rally to come together, grieve and find our path forward together.
In response to the high number of crashes that occur at the intersection of N. Plum St., Park Ave. and E. New St., the City will install a mini roundabout at the intersection on Wednesday, June 12.
The roundabout will be created using paint markings and flexible delineators. It will initially be executed as a three- to six-month pilot program. If successful, a more permanent solution will be implemented.
