Lancaster City Alliance
We are very excited to let you know that two strong and vital Lancaster City organizations will consolidate into a single, more powerful force. On July 1, 2013, the Lancaster Alliance and the James Street Improvement District (JSID) will join forces into a single community-service organization that will be more effective than either is alone.
Together, the Alliance and the JSID offer 30 years' experience in community and economic development. As the newly formed Lancaster City Alliance, we will deliver many more.
As we move forward with this consolidation, rest assured that our intention is for a seamless transition while preserving the key programs that provide value to the communities each organization currently serves. The combined staff of both organizations will make up the Lancaster City Alliance team. The new organization will continue the Alliance's work as an engaged intermediary in support of City priorities such as financial sustainability and public safety. JSID Neighborhood clean-and-safe initiatives will continue. The Lancaster Downtown Investment District (DID) will be managed within this new organization and the Bike Ambassadors will continue to serve within the current JSID boundaries.
This is an exciting time for the organization and the City. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit James Street Improvement Districts website at jsidlancaster for more information about this great organization, its initiatives and why we are so excited for this new partnership.
Formed in 1993, the Lancaster Alliance is a core group of executive business leaders dedicated to the City of Lancaster and to improving its financial stability, public safety and quality of life.
But importantly, as an alliance, we align with likeminded economic-development and community organizations—jointly identifying key initiatives, linking stakeholders, allocating resources, acting as a catalyst—to produce extraordinary outcomes for the future benefit and utility of the City.
Through corporate commitment, talented CEO-based leadership and coordinated in-depth planning, the Lancaster Alliance strives to achieve extraordinary outcomes for residents and visitors, neighborhoods and communities.
