Share Your Voice with The Yorktowne Hotel

Jun 11, 2018 | YCIDA News

YORK, Pa. – (June 11, 2018) – The York County Industrial Development Authority (YCIDA), staffed by YCEA, invites the community to a public forum to hear an update on the progress of the historic hotel’s renovations and share suggestions for the next phase.

“About a year and a half ago, we held the first forum to hear from the community what they wanted this pillar of York to include,” said Jack Kay, chair of the YCIDA. “Now we’ve achieved some milestones and want to hear more specifics – such as what the business community needs in their conference rooms, or what event planners need from the dining and ballroom space. Engaging the community has been a consistent objective of the project.”

The public meeting will be held Thursday, June 28 from 5-7 p.m. in the White Rose Room at PeoplesBank Park, another YCIDA project. Similar in format to the prior forum in 2016, a scrolling list of feedback from the audience will be visible on one screen. The event will be live-streamed as well and online comments included on the screen during the forum.

“There is a deep interest in this project, and through all of it, our intention is to bring this gem back to the what the community needs,” said Kay. “The first forum gave us excellent ideas and we are proud to say many of those have been or will be able to be, implemented in the Yorktowne.”

Those able to attend are asked to RSVP to or 717-771-4583.  Light refreshments will be provided and a cash bar will be available. Please visit for project updates.
