Moving Plans into Action - A Community Initiative

Downtown Inc has adopted three new initiatives as a part of our Action Plan for 2014:

Housing: Create a diverse mix of housing, both rental and for- sale, at multiple price points, to address the market demand for downtown living, increasing the number of downtown residents, known to spend eight times more at local businesses than their daily workforce counterparts.

Bike-ability/Walkability: Enhance the landscape of the area, catering to pedestrians and bicyclists, through beautification and curb appeal, way-finding and sign-age, public and open spaces, parking, accessibility, and safety.

Codorus Creek: Create an attractive and inviting public space that taps the Creek as a placemaking asset and capitalizes on the anticipated extension of the York County Heritage Rail Trail.

We would like to thank our strategic investor partners in this initiative:
