The Redevelopment Authority of the City of Lancaster was established in 1957 to redevelop and rehabilitate blighted areas and to prevent property deterioration in other areas. It has the power, within areas set by the Planning Commission, to investigate, plan, purchase property, make contracts for demolition and rebuilding, and provide parks and recreation areas. Present emphasis is on rehabilitation rather than demolition.
The Authority meets the third Tuesday of each month at 5:15 PM at City Hall, 120 North Duke Street. Please enter the Annex through the Marion Street entrance.
Contact 717-291-4760 for additional information.
The Redevelopment Authority has properties for sale for the purpose of homeownership and elimination of blight conditions in the City of Lancaster.
This project is supported through the City of Lancaster’s Community Development Block Grant Program.
