Mayor’s Neighborhood Month Returns to Lancaster City in May

April 24, 2024 | Department of Neighborhood Engagement

The City of Lancaster will once again celebrate its neighborhoods with Mayor’s Neighborhood Month this May. Residents are encouraged to come together to learn more about City government programs and initiatives and celebrate the unique character and spirit of their community at a slate of events in parks in each quadrant throughout the month.

“Neighborhood Month provides a unique opportunity to connect our city government with the people it serves. By hosting events in each quadrant of the City, Neighborhood Month celebrates the many neighborhoods that make Lancaster an exceptional place to live. I encourage everyone to attend to learn about City initiatives and meet a new neighbor or two,” said Mayor Danene Sorace.
