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:

Welcome to Downtown York!

There’s so much to experience here in York, PA! Whether it’s a ballgame at Sovereign Bank Santander Stadium (home to our York Revolution) or a day of shopping and fantastic foods in our Market District, York is a destination for all to enjoy here in south central Pennsylvania. 


Our proud city has a history of making things. From the turn of the century manufacturing through today’s technological and industrial design, York has stood apart as a place where the design and the industrial meet… and are unleashed!  It is no secret that we are known as the Industrial Arts & Design Capital of the World.  Today’s manufacturing businesses like BAE Systems stand shoulder-to-shoulder with industrial artists creating incredible works of art throughout our downtown. Every street corner is a canvass, every business a designer of community.


Great restaurants, historic sites, wonderful art galleries, and amazing businesses help shape the spirit of York.  Come experience it for yourself. Click on the above icons to begin to plan some time with us here in the White Rose City.  Shopping, Dining, Nightlife, and Entertainment…. York has it all!
