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.
The City of Lancaster will begin work on drainage improvements in the 500 block of Euclid Avenue on Monday, September 26. The work will include the installation of two new inlets in Euclid Avenue to alleviate localized ponding water in this area. The work will require closing the 500 block of Euclid Avenue for approximately five days from Monday, September 26, to Friday, September 30.
The City of Lancaster has received additional funding from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to begin detailed mapping of the City’s stormwater infrastructure. Section 22 of the Water Resources Development Act, as amended, authorizes the U.S. Army Corps to provide planning assistance to local governments in support of planning efforts for development and conservation of water and related land resources, such as mapping of storm sewer systems (e.g., inlets, grates, pipes, endwalls, swales, etc.).
