Here you will find all you need to know about the aspects of growing and owning a business as well as development projects in the City of York. We welcome your entrepreneurial spirit and hope that you'll check out the projects taking root in our neighborhoods across the City and within the industrial park. Please check back often as we add and update content. 

The Mission of this department is to create conditions that encourage a diversely vibrant economy throughout the City by forming partnerships and coalition-building, to incubate and execute economic development and a variety of lifestyle enhancing initiatives for all residents of and visitors to our City. We pride ourselves in creating and initiating large scale development and redevelopment projects by marketing sites, project management and facilitation, coordinating land acquisition, appraisals and environmental studies. We also strive to assist citizens of the city and the neighborhoods in which they reside through housing initiatives, neighborhood-building, programs for first time home buyers and  use of federal funding to improve the quality of life of our residents.
