Welcome to the City of Lancaster!
A relatively small city of 7 square miles and 60,000 residents, Lancaster City is located within driving distance of Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Delaware beaches and the Jersey shore. But the City of Lancaster is about so much more than our geographic location. Lancaster City is a place where historic preservation and a cutting-edge arts scene live and thrive side by side; a city of neighborhoods that are safe and welcoming; a city that encourages entrepreneurship and investment; a city that values the cultural, ethnic, and diverse lifestyles of our residents and guests.
Beginning on Monday, February 26, contractors for the City of Lancaster Department of Public Works (Rogele, Inc.) will mobilize and begin the first of approximately seven phases of construction. Each phase is slated to last 6-8 weeks with weather cooperation. The contractor will generally work on 1-2 phases at a time, and generally proceed with the work from north to south.
City offices will be closed on Monday, February 19 for President's Day.
Trash and recycling collection will remain on schedule. Customers should put their trash and recycling out on their regular collection day.
There will be no street cleaning on Monday, February 19. Street cleaning will resume its regular schedule on Tuesday, February 20.
Wishing all a safe & happy holiday weekend!
