York County Planning Regions
Greater York Region
We believe in the conservation of rural and scenic areas accompanied by agricultural protection and agriculturally related support for businesses while also pursuing a continuing effort toward the revitalization and infill for the city, boroughs, and township with underused buildings. We seek to recruit target industries, including firms engaged in research, development, technology and innovation. We envision nothing less than the full potential of higher density, mixed use development growth and commercial corridor development accessibility and alternative modes of transportation.

We strive to manage growth and development while also actively participating in the conservation of rural and scenic areas and the revitalization and infill within the boroughs. Our support of agricultural protection also extends to agricultural-related businesses.

South Central Region
Our continuing endeavor of agricultural protections, and the support of agriculturally-related businesses, plays an integral role in the retention and expansion of small businesses where infrastructure supports growth. Our aim for office, retail (to serve population), and industrial growth is directed to existing industrial parks in an effort to continuously provide the conservation of rural and scenic areas.
South Eastern Region
We are dedicated to managed growth and development of community/cultural facilities and services, including a youth center, playground, library and medical offices. Our continued focus on limited neighborhood-serving retail expansion along Route 74 corridor and boroughs, with an emphasis on smaller-scale shops, helps service the South Eastern Region while also supporting agritourism which includes but is not limited to bed and breakfasts, corn mazes, hayrides and wineries.
South Western Region
In the South Western Region we are dedicated to the revitalization and infill in boroughs, including restaurants, small retail shops, and small-scale offices to serve the local population with limited neighborhood-serving, smaller scale retail expansion in townships that address the daily needs of residents. Our continued focus on diversification of manufacturing and industrial-based development, accompanied by an emphasis on smaller-scale shops, helps service the Region while also supporting agritourism which includes but is not limited to bed and breakfasts, corn mazes, hayrides and wineries.
