Southwest Lancaster Awarded $1.15M Over 5 Years To Revitalize Neighborhood

Southwest Lancaster city residents are celebrating. They have ambitious plans to invest in better housing, to clean up parks and build new ones, to encourage others to move in and buy homes.

They want to revive one of the most neglected quadrants of the city.

The tradition-rich neighborhoods, settled in the 1800s by Germans and home to a new generation of immigrants, people from Angola and Laos and Puerto Rico and the Congo, have brought new cultures, ideas and energy to Lancaster’s Southwest community.

And now they’re getting some help.

A Wells Fargo foundation that funds neighborhood improvements in the U.S. is awarding $1.15 million to the Southwest over five years, money that will be used to fix up homes, lure more businesses and pay for new bike ambassadors and street lights and other amenities that add to the quality of life. to read.
