Borough Revitalization

The Redevelopment Authority assists boroughs and other jurisdictions seeking to pursue downtown redevelopment/revitalization projects. The initiative is designed to build on community planning already in place; the downtown should already have a master plan or other similar document defining objectives for the redevelopment/revitalization effort. Projects pursued will be consistent with these plans as well as the County’s comprehensive plan. Many such plans are drafted but are slow to be implemented because the municipalities lack the specific redevelopment and economic development skills necessary to advance the projects. It is the goal of the Authority to provide these skills within the context of state redevelopment statutes.

In many, but not all, cases, the Authority will be working within designated Redevelopment Areas as defined in 35 P.S. §1710.


Partnerships

The Redevelopment Authority is part of the Economic Development Company of Lancaster’s (EDC) Borough Collaborative Group. This is a ground-level approach to working with the 18 Boroughs of the County on economic development initiatives. The Redevelopment Authority and EDC meet regularly to discuss ongoing projects within the Boroughs.
