The Lancaster CRIZ Authority is a municipal authority appointed and created by the City of Lancaster to oversee the implementation of the Lancaster City Revitalization and Improvement Zone (CRIZ) Program. The CRIZ Program can provide financial assistance to development projects that occur within the 130 CRIZ District from eligible state and local tax revenues generated by the project.

CRIZ Authority meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month beginning at 4 p.m. in the City Commission Meeting Room at City Hall, 120 North Duke Street.
For more information, call (717) 291-4760.
The CRIZ Authority will be holding a public hearing at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 in the City Commission Meeting Room at City Hall to discuss the removal of some properties and businesses from the CRIZ and to provide the opportunity for public comment. The removal of these properties and businesses does not prevent them from being added back in to the CRIZ District at a later date. Click here for a list of the proposed properties to be removed.
