Comprehensive Plan – Vision 2030

The future is sure to bring new development and change to Lancaster Township. Change is managed through planning – planning for the best locations for development and for open space, for acceptable amounts and intensities of development, for improvements to roads and extensions of public utilities, etc. Lancaster Township is now planning for the next 10 years. The Township intends to prepare a practical plan that will be shared with citizens late in 2019 before its formal review and adoption. To this end, Lancaster Township has formed a Comprehensive Plan Committee that will be working in conjunction with Gannett Fleming to complete the project prior to submitting the proposed plan to the Lancaster Township Board of Supervisors.
