At this milestone, Lancaster City Alliance invited the Plan’s nationally recognized consultants from Mahan Rykiel Associates, Inc., Arnett Muldrow & Associates, Ltd., and RGS Associates, Inc. to return for a special panel discussion with the Plan’s steering committee, the Lancaster City Alliance’s Economic Development & Planning Executive Leadership Team, as well as the organization’s Chairpersons Council and Advocacy Executive Leadership Teams.
