The Lancaster County Planning Commission – Pennsylvania 2016 Planning Leadership Awards presented the Envision Planning Award for the #BuildingOnStrength Economic Development Strategic Plan for the City of Lancaster. The judges commented that it “Demonstrated a high level of civic engagement and showed how planning should be done.”
“Through the creation of Building on Strength, the Lancaster City Alliance has created a long-term economic development strategy for the City of Lancaster. This planning process began from a position of strength, largely the result of over 15 years of coordinating and implementing strategies identified in a 1998 plan. Today Lancaster is building on that strength.”
Accepting the award for Lancaster City Alliance were President/CEO, Bob Shoemaker, Executive Vice President Marshall Snively and Vice President Shelby Nauman. They represented the Project Partners: the City of Lancaster, PA Government, Mahan Rykiel Associates, RGS Associates and Arnett Muldrow & Associates.
